Depends on how many days you haven't went. If you haven't went for a week it is, sometimes, equivalent to even 5 lbs of weight. So yeah you might retain or even gain.

Hmmm... maybe see your doctor? You wouldn't want to do anything that would be unwise...

have you tried taking something like sennokot or dulcolax/dulcoease? Can get it all at tesco/boots I think and may just kickstart you as it were?

fyi, I tried dulcolax and had diarrhea for 3 days! I recommend starting off with half the suggested dosage just in case! I find a tablespoon or two of flaxseed oil followed by a cup of coffee or tea helps me IMMENSELY when I have that problem.

I would never let it go that long. At least in my case, I feel there is a direct proportion between the severity of the constipation and the number of days. Unless something happens no longer than 72 hours later, I take action.
Have you tried going for a run? That works like a charm.

Magnesium.

Usually when you're constipated, it's due to ingesting too much protein & not enough fat..."fat" keeps things moving along! - and many people on low-fat diets end up constipated... also, your body is telling you that it's "low" on magnesium. Take a couple of magnesium supplements per day, or go the quickie route & try some Milk of Magnesia. If that doesn't work, DEFINITELY see your doctor.
