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.

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