Hello dear,

The causes of constipation can be:
1. Functional cause- due to decreased gastric motility
2. Irritable bowel syndrome- constipation predominant type.
3. Less consumption of fiber rich foods
4. Less fluid intake
5. Prolonged use of certain medications.
6. Hormonal & Metabolic causes, etc.

So, kindly consult a Gastroenterologist & get a proper physical examination done.
Investigations like Ultrasound scan of abdomen, Colonoscopy & contrast studies will be helpful to rule out any pathology in the Gastrointestinal tract.

Till then, symptomatic relief can be obtained by intake of Laxatives & stool softeners, but their regular use is not advised.
However, as long as the underlying cause is not treated, symptoms will keep recurring.

Wishing a good health.
