I've been having this problem the last few days, and need help badly …I suffer from constipation, and a few days ago my belly started to get bloated, and I dunno what to do. I've been eating lots of fiber to try to stop the constipation but its no use.
Should I try a laxative? will this end the whole bloated belly thing? It makes me look about a few pounds heavier, Help?
It sounds like you have been constipated for several days. I think eating fruit and taking some stool softeners may help, if not by all means take a gentle laxative because you are filling up with gas and you need to relieve all that pressure and contents of your colon.Also drink plenty of liquids maybe prune juice which is a natural laxative.
I am five weeks pregnant and the last few days I have had constipation….I can go but its hard to not much of it at all….what can I do? any insight would be helpful thanks!
It's terrible, isn't it? It's caused by the pregnancy hormones slowing down your digestive system. Scientists think this is so the body can get every little bit of nutrition from the food you eat, which might have been important hundreds of years ago.
I found that the kind of fiber in whole grains didn't help as much as eating fresh veggies. I have some celery, carrot sticks, bell peppers, etc. with every meal, and fruit with breakfast. Lots of salad, too. It's the only thing that really helped me…. even softeners did nothing.
By the way, my record for not going was 10 days. Consider yourself lucky.
