I've heard deshelled peas help with bloating/constipation.
Can she see a male betta at all? She might be producing eggs, they do that when they see some handsome betta's.

A lot of betta owners have never seen their betta poop, or some have and it's just been awkward. Is she still eating?

No, don't do peas.

Fast her for three or four days and see if it goes down.

Which leads to the question of;

What are you feeding her?
How much are you feeding her?

Fast for two days and treat with unscented pure epsom salts to clean her out. 1-2 tsp/gallon.
