What causes constipation?
Sometimes there is no obvious reason why you are constipated.
Constipation is caused by a number of habits, but these can easily be reversed.
Hannah said: “Constipation can be learnt and perfected from childhood through to adulthood.”
The most common causes include a lack of fibre, not drinking enough fluids, and not moving enough, ignoring the urge to go to the toilet.
You could also be temporarily constipated due to a change in diet or routine, a side effect of medicine, or stress, anxiety or depression, according to the NHS website.
Hannah said you can be emotionally constipated and physically constipated.
