Constipation is when you find it hard to poo or you go to the toilet less often than usual.
Symptoms of constipation include going for a poo fewer than 3 times in a week and finding it hard to poo.
Constipation can usually be treated with simple changes like eating more fibre and being more active. Speak to a pharmacist if these do not help.
Common causes of constipation include not eating enough fruit and vegetables, not drinking enough fluids and being inactive.
