It is essential to consult your doctor for an examination and pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant, it is possible that your menstruation is returning but being off the oral contraceptive, you might experience an irregular heavier period. The constipation can be due to the fact that you are about to have your period. It is important to treat your constipation with Laxette syrup, in combination with Softlax tablets (available over the counter).
