My husband and I started a colon cleanse 3 weeks ago. Everything is working as planned except Im concerned I might be pregnant.Being pregnant is not a problem except the medicine we are taking states that you shouldnt use it if you are pregnant or nursing. I have done some research on why or what will happen or could happen and havent been able to find an answer. So does anyone know what happens if I become pregnant while on a colon cleanse. Just in case Im taking Colonix by Dr Natura.
Any time you are taking medication that states it can be harmful if pregnant or nursing, is because it can cause a deformaty in your child or delay the process of growth. The best thing to do is to go to a ob/gyn or a free clinic based in a hospital in your area, and for your own saftey they can find out if your pregnant with blood work. He should also give you a recommendation on what medications are available for your pregnancy if infact there is one. But your first step would be to stop until you go to the ob/gyn. There you can get all of the help you need. Hope i helped.
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.
