hi ladies. well, it has finally happened. I am constipated and in so much pain - i have irritable bowel syndrome :(
do you know if it is safe to take fiber lax during pregnancy? i drink pleanty of water and eat fiber regularly, but i guess it was inevitable. thanks for ANY help. I need to get the ball rolling. LOL
This has been ongoing for me.:( Honestly, the best thing that's helped is suppositories. My doc suggested doing it twice a day no matter what. It seems to help unclog that initial plug or blockage and then I can finally go some.
But you can also take Miralax safely--it disolves completely in hot liquid. Stool softeners and milk of magnesia are fine. You may try that Activia yogurt, too?
