    Has anyone else suffered from this? What is safe to use? I've never had this before so don't have a clue what I should take. Thanks for any help xx

    To be honest I just eat loads of fruit which seems to help but specifically kiwi fruit so I try to eat at least a couple per day and i make sure i drink plenty........if that doesn't help i would go and see your gp. Hope that helps

    Oh god yes! I hadn't been to the toilet since Monday and I was really uncomfortable. Finally managed to go today! I've been eating fruit and veg to try and make me go but its not really working. Best ask your GP or MW they can give you something for it

    I used to use lactulose as I suffered from constipation the whole way through my pregnancy and it's safe to use, the GP gave me mine xxx
