I have been so constipated the past 2 weeks and if I'm honest I would give anything to do a real number 2 :( Are laxatives safe to take? Just the over the counter tablet kinds... I don't want to take them if they bring on cramps or anything, I just wanna take a decent dump! Lol

Senakot is safe... It's all natural.

I heard they can induce contractions. But maybe try high fiber diet for a few days? I eat a big bowl of cereal with lots of fiber or a big salad and it makes me have to shit.

If you are pregnant, laxatives arent the smartest choice.

Before you consider that route, I'd try really increasing the amount of fiber and water in your diet. And use a stool softner like Ducolax.

Usually just increasing water and fiber intake is enough to jumpstart things! I had a very rough time with all of my pregnancies.

Prune juice worked for me. It tastes gross, but it helped loosen it up.

Salads and I dont get along very well for obvious reasons. lol I LOVE salads, but I spend too much time in the bathroom within a half hour of eating them.

Not fun. lol

my dr recomended magnesium sulfate. you can get it at any drug store or the dollar store. it is a clear liquiid in a 10 oz bottle. u mix it with orange juice and can hardly taste it. it works good, and is really cheap. another one that is safe and works well is milk of magnesium. get phillips brand though, it works better and don't taste as bad.

no i'm not crazy. my ob dr told me to use it, not the whole bottle at once, and you mix it with oj and that's what it taste like, oj. no need to be rude. if you don't like the advice, don't take it.
