Hi, I get really bad constipation which has been a problem for me for years and I've taken all different types of medication some that work and others that don't. The powder sachets are the only thing I can rely on to get things moving. I'm now 20 weeks pregnant and I want to try more natural remedies. My Dr gave me lactulose but it's failed to work even though I make sure I drink lots of water, in fact it's the only thing that I can drink atm and I have a tall glass per hour so I know I'm getting plenty of water. I'm going to try to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, dried prunes and prune juice. I'm going to cut out things like crisps, chocolate, etc I only have these maybe once a day but I think it would be good to replace these with something healthy like fruit instead. I'm going to try to eat more fibre like brown bread and bran flakes. I've covered everything I can think of. Is there anything else that I could try? I really want to do everything possible to help me as I do suffer badly with this and what ought to work and what does work for other people won't get things moving for me.
