Post subject: laxatives while TTC
hi girlies,

i am currently in the 2ww (7dpo) and sooo constipated (tmi sorry).

I was wondering if it was safe to take laxatives while ttc? I bought some prune juice cos i heard it was a natural laxative but took one sip and nearly threw up (soz tmi yet again Wink ) it is vile!

I feel soo uncomfortable so def need something. Any one have any suggestions of which lax may be ok to use??

Thanks guys, I will try the warm water with a bit of lime first and the may try what monkeyluv suggested if that doesn't work.

monkeyluv, can you buy them over the counter or do you need a prescription?

I am having slight cramping but can't tell if it is a symptom of being bunged up or PG! Probably from being bunged up but i can always hope eh?

If none of the above work why dont you go to a health shop, everything in there is so natural to take rather than chemicals and they will have something there.
