I would suggest to get a thyroid function test done as it can be one of the causes of constipation, in case the thyroid function is normal I would suggest to start on fibre supplements an take them for at least 8 to 12 weeks. In case your symptoms persist in fibre supplemts then you might need additional medications to find the cause of constipation.
Hope this helps
