What is your overall diet like? If you are eating a lot of cheese or other constipating foods, the fiber supplements don't always do their job. What supplement are you taking? Make sure to read the directions bc some you take with food, some without.
Are you on any iron supplements?? These are very constipating so you may require more dietary changes (more brans, fruit)

HMMMM--if the fiber supplements aren't working, maybe you could call your doctor and see what they recommend. The only other thing I can think of is some medicines are constipating (like Percocet)--so if you are taking anything regularily, check the side effects. It sounds like you are doing everything correctly. This may be too personal, but have you ever tried a stool softener???

Im on a stool softner, i take one every other day, but it doesnt seem to do much, i just feel like i have to go to the bathroom and never actually do lol. My doctor knows about all of this, Ive had tests beyond Tests to try to figure out whats wrong and no one can figure it out!

If you can, try eating 1-2 prunes everyday. This will work. And make sure you eat 5-6 small meals a day. Never go more then 4 hours without eating. This will help boost your metablism and get things running properly. Also try 1-2 cups of green tea everyday. This helped me!! Good Luck!
