I haven't had a proper bowel movement in 3 weeks

Patient : I haven't had a proper bowel movement in 3 weeks (when I say 'proper' i mean I haven't had a normal one, just tiny pieces which require a lot of straining) I went to my doctor and he gave me some Dulcolax Suppositories and some Lactolose, I've also been drinking lots of water. It's been 3 days now and so far nothing's worked at all. I'm experiencing a lot of abdominal pain, and I'm quite bloated, however I am still able to eat small amounts of food. It's beginning to really worry me (I'm only 14, and I'm a female) and I honestly don't know what to do anymore. Some advice would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.
Symptoms:  Constipation, abdominal pain, bloating.
