Do i need to go to a doctor?

I am on a diet of 1000 to 1600 calories a day and i drink 4-5 glasses of water daily but I haven't passed stool for 5 days. Last time this happened was for 3 days. but I passed stool on the 3rd day after I drank 2 glasses of warm water. But this time it didn't work.

I also took laxatives but I still haven't passed stool.

PLEASE help.

I am sorry no one else responded to you. It's probably too late now but I will respond just in case you're still looking.

Yes, you need to see your doctor to find out why you're having constipation.
