I really dont know! i have not been told that i cant take laxatives, when i was first diagnosed with IBS i had gone 3 weeks without going the loo and the doctor gave me fibregel, which i know isnt quitea laxative but it was supposed to make me go

A few glasses of wine works for me!! Probably not medically sound advice though...

Try these (but not all together)


  1. Prune juice
  2. Mug of hot water
  3. Massaging your stomach clockwise whilst sitting on the loo
  4. Orange juice with a little brown sugar
  5. Fibregel (drink with an orangey flavour)
  6. Lots of fluids.. water especially but tea as well.

Thing is as it has been a while you may have hard stools which may be difficult to pass.. If you have not been by Monday get to the doctors as you can never underestimate your bowels and it needs to be sorted asap xxx

Exactly what has been said here, a nurse advised me to drink hot water or tea/coffee if i dont wanna take lax.
good luck with the loo before WI !

my mum drinks aloe vera from the health food shop...she suffers severly from constipation, whereas i am the opposite! (thank god)

i find if i've eaten LOADS of fibre it can have the opposite effect and something fatty like cheese gets things moving!

I've been ill for a few days.

I just had about 10-15 sugar-free cherry tunes as my throat was really hurting. (OTT I know.. :()

If anyone ever has any problems with constipation again...10-15 tunes in an hour will solve the problem but it will make you think you may be going to die in the process.....:eek::cry:
