Please let your doctor check your thyroid function with a blood test. Also look at medications you take ( e.g. containing codeien like headache tablets or vitamins containing iron, antidepressants) that can cause constipation. You can take Movicol or Lactulose daily to keep stool soft and aid bowel movement -both are safe to use long term.
