this may be too yuck a question but its something that's really bothering me ... I have always had normal bowel movements .. even bordering on loose rather than firm .. but since I had my miscarriage and d & c 5 days ago .. I have had terrible constipation ... never having had this problem before I'm finding it quite distressing .. I am a nutritionist and have a good diet so it's never been an issue before .. now its uncomfortable and painful and just one more thing to deal with in this awful week .. I just want to get over the physical side of this! I'm still getting pains in my uterus which I imagine is normal since it just carried a baby till 11.5 weeks so I'm not worried about that ..
has anyone had this problem? and how long did it last? x
I have had a few movements that have been very impacted and painful .. my lovely holistic GP thinks that it's tied up with my emotions .. that because I didn't see our little bub that I'm holding on to it .. she could be right .. its a strange thing to walk into hospital at 9am pregnant and walk out at 5pm not pregnant .. I can see my body returning back to normal and feel pains from my uterus but it all seems slightly surreal .. I think when I get my first normal af it will come full circle
I feel sorry for people that suffer constipation all the time ... as a nutritionist I have treated dozens of people with this problem but never really understood how yuck it really is!
Hi tones, I'm so sorry you got an infection, I had one after my D&C also and it was horrid :( I think I was also slightly constipated though not to the extent that you were. So glad that you are beginning to feel physically stronger again, I know I turned a corner once the infection had gone. Good luck xx
