I reckon you should go talk to ur doc cos if ur in that much pain then they should be able to do something about it for u!
if ur constipated drink loads and it may get rid of it (it usually works for me) and then u won't have to strain so much on the toilet

Hi Laura, I thought I had been getting away with this constipation thing while pregnant but I stopped having my usual Shreddies for breakfast and god am I paying for it, the last two days have been in absolute agony. If I were you and can get into my docs I would (it's a 2 week waiting list where I live if it's not an emergency!!! ) I think I'm just gonna have to get some more Shreddies and hope for the best.
Sorry if I haven't been much help.

I'm so sorry you're going through this awful pain, i would definately go back to the docs and dont leave without a referral or more advice that can help you. Its unpleasant but the doc will hopefully look at your bum to see how bad it is and maybe give you something other than cream that will work faster - only thing is us pregnant ladies are hard pushed to use medication during this time.
I really hope you find a solution, good luck Axxx

I had his after my first child, and it was called a fissure. I was prescribed a cream (can't remember what though sorry) that contain local anaesthetics (eg lidocaine) or steroids (eg hydrocortisone) and it did the job. It was absolute agony - like pooing glass!! Hope you get a doctor's appointment soon if this is what you have as it is horrific!

I know how you feel bless you hun, I was consipated after having Kieran and I dont know if you remember me posting a topic called pooing glass. I was advised on drinking fresh orange juice and after drinking about three cartons of the stuff I could go to the toilet alot easier and the bleeding slowly stopped. Still have days now where it hurts but I just do that, either that or eat plenty of grapes someone told me but I dont know if that works.
