It sucks to be 13 and have to get things we aren't used to getting in regard to our bodies. You have to get used to it. It only takes a second, and you usually can check out at the pharmacy where they are used to seeing this, and much worse. They won't think anything of it. A mild laxative is milk of magnesia, that 's probably best. Or if you want something natural get glycerin suppositories. eew I know, but it's better for you.

no it's not okay at all. Those are suppose to be used occasionally. Your body will end up relying on them for your bowel movements, not good.
Try taking natural ways to increase your BM's. Like magnesium, freshly ground flax seeds. You have to freshly grind them because the positive benefits of flax seed oil go rancid fast. Also increasing fiber helps a lot.
I use to have a problem with hemorrhoids but not after cleaning up my diet. Drink enough water, get more fiber, cut out sugars and simple carbs and foods you are sensitive to.
I'd say the best route is to first try eating more fruits and vegetables. Usually constipation is due to the lack of nutrient. It also wouldn't hurt to cut out some of the processed foods you eat. If that doesn't cure it then the next best step is bring the issue up with your parents.
Best of luck!

There are lots of natural laxatives you could try. There is a list of them at the website I put as my source. This way you don't ahve to be embarrassed of buying them, or talk to your mom. Good luck! I hope one of the mworks for you.

Laxatives can give you terrible cramps, too. I personally avoid them. To counteract constipation, you need plenty of fiber and lots of water in your diet. If you can't eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, then you can supplement your diet with fiber through other means. There are products you can buy at the drugstore, like FiberCon, or you can go to the health food store and get natural products. Either way, it will take time.
Having said all that, if you haven't seen a doctor, you might want to schedule a checkup if this problem continues. You could have an intestinal blockage rather than just simple constipation.
