Does teething cause constipation?

My youngest child(5 months) just pooped today for the first time in almost 5 days. He is breastfed and hasn't had cereal in this time. My diet hasn't changed and he was pooping regularly previously. I don't want him to go through this every time he needs to poop. He had horrible gas but he was happy regardless. Any help?

Yes, my daughter went through the same thing, I gave her some apple juice and then moved back, trust me when I say it relieved the problem.
