There are many reasons for constipation and without why I don't know what to tell you. The doc you went to seems to think the problem is what you eat, which may be all it is.
About bleeding. Hemorrhoids often bleed especially when we strain. The blood is always red and easy to see. Don't worry about that. Any red blood is usually nothing to fear. The blood docs worry about is dark, almost black, and it makes your stool look like tar. That's blood from way up in your colon and a scope must be done asap.
I find Dulcolax helpful but it often takes 4 a day for several days. Water and fruit are also good as is a bran muffin or bran flakes cereal. A lot of people get good results from Metamucil but I never tried it.
I've also used Fleets saline enemas with good results. It usually works in 5 to 10 minutes. It can be messy but if you need it try it.
