    What causes chronic constipation?

My stomach hurts..i have been sleeping alot and eating after midnight. I had intercourse but used protection. Had my period but it only lasted 3 days instead of 4 or 5..i feel like throwing up..i have been constipated for 3yrs now and I have had blood in my stool. Is this something serious? I am 5"7..about 180 and im 20 yrs old.
