Constipation is one of the major problems during pregnancy which disrupts normal daily life of a pregnant woman. Though it has been found to have effects on a large number of pregnant women in developing countries, no authentic estimation is available to understand the immensity of this problem in Bangladesh. Women in our country might not speak much about their maternal problems but this does not excuse the actual fact that the surrounding system is not ready to concentrate on this matter yet. Additionally, most of them take it normally or ignore it as a negligible matter. The aim of this study was to elucidate the current scenario of this problem in Dhaka city women, compare the acuteness of constipation among different age groups of pregnant women, primiparous and multiparous housewives and working women while determining the existence treatment options that might play a significant role to overcome this issue.
