Hello,

Pycnogenol does not cause constipation usually but it can be a rare side effect.

I recommend using over the counter Laxative option like Miralax.

I also recommend using daily probiotics.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi,
