I haven’t had a bowel movement today. Does this mean that I’m constipated?

No. Going a day without a bowel movement does not signify constipation; each person’s digestive system has its own natural time frame. A problem is present if you have difficulty or pain passing a stool or extreme infrequency in doing so.
