What life time treatment can be taken for constipation ?

I am having constipation since childhood. Though sometimes it gets okay but generally it happens after 2days or so. I have tried medicines but they relieve me until I intake them. What could be the harms of having constipation in long term???

More strain during defecation can definitely lead some disease like piles, fissure. So constipation can lead with some disease.
Consume alot of fibrous diet and drink plenty of water. Have proper sleep.

There are no harms for any disease due to constipation.Yes if there is absolute constipation where one has not passed stool for so many days and stool becomes dry and hard called fecolith,this will blocks the intestinal lumen causing serious problem.
Passing stool after two-three days is no problem.
Take more liquids,more green vegetables to avoid constipation.Do abdominal exercise.
