Buy a laxative from your local drugstore or supermarket. They even come in chocolate flavored, lol. I think eating fruits may help too.


I dont know if you are preggy... But if you are, I dont know if you can take laxatives...?

One other thing, don't hang on for as long as possible.
When you feel the need *go* else things can become compacted and difficult.

I had this problem about a month ago. It sucked so bad. I wound up really big and bloated cause I would go for days without going. I asked my doctor and here is what he told me....

Drink a lot of water. More than usual

eat leafy green veggies

take metamucil...This helped me so much. I bought the capsules which are kind of expensive, but when you are in that pain...You want whatever will make you go.


I took metamucil for a few days and I found that and water did the trick. Good luck! Smile

Constipation is not a definitive sign of pregnancy.
If you have had unprotected sex then the simple answer is yes you could be pregnant.
You need to take a pregnancy test.
