Clearing Bowels Before Pranayama

I am unable to clear my bowels before starting pranayama in the morning. It seems there is a problem regarding digestion. What I have to do? Can I practice Pranayama even my bowels are not cleared? Please advise me.
1. It depends on the constipation. If you are able to clear your bowels once in 24 hours, it is considered normal. It is preferable to clear your bowels in the morning before yoga asanas/ pranayama. If it is not possible, you can carry on with pranayama.
2. Preferably with regular practice your digestion and constipation will improve.
3. You can take 2-3 Tripahala tablets with warm water or milk before sleeping. Eat 2-3 pieces of 'BEL Murabba' on empty stomach once after doing yoga in the morning and once in the evening. I hope this will help to get cure from constipation.
