Does smokeless tobacco cause constipation?

Hello, I was wondering if using smokeless tobacco can cause chronic constipation. I have been using smokeless tobacco for about 6 years and I am 21 years old. I am very healthy. I have been constipated for about 4 months now. I have been using laxatives to help me use the bathroom but if I don t take the laxatives I can t go. I m just trying to figure out if tobacco or nicotine can cause constipation. Thank you

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, no smoke less tobacco does not cause any constipation but this could be due to less water intake and less fiber diet if you take this then this would be fine soon, take care.
