Our expert says:
Temporary constipation could be the result of hormonal changes (if you are not postmenopausal, then you may experience some constipation because of hormonal changes during your menstrual cycle), ingestion of other medications, stress, etc. If none of these factors apply and the constipation persists for longer than a month, please have a medical checkup just to make sure that there is no underlying physical cause that needs attention. You can try using cooked dried fruit with the All-Bran in the morning and start taking probiotics ("good microorganisms") such as Bifidoforte (buy at health shop) to promote regularity.
