Constipation is very common and it affects people of all ages. Often it can be caused by a change in your diet – perhaps not eating enough fruit, vegetables or fibre. Medications such as painkillers or iron supplements can also cause constipation.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet, drinking plenty of fluids and regular exercise can reduce your risk of developing constipation.  However if you experience on-going discomfort you should seek medical attention.
