1 and half cup of prune juice + 2 Dulcolax!!?

So I haven’t had any bowl movement in almost 3 weeks. I felt really sick and bloated so I tried prune juice yesterday and I had 2 cups of it and it didn’t work.
Tonight I felt so desperate so I had 1and half cups of prune juice plus 2 dulcolax :S
It’s my first time taking a stool softner and I feel really scared because I heard it can give you really bad cramps 🙁

I usually eat a lot of fiber during the day and I also drink tons of water so I don’ really know what Is causing me to have constipation.

How bad are the cramps and also how long does it take for it to work???

    Sometimes excess of fiber also lead to constipation. While consuming fiber foods you should maintain the equilibrium. Without bowel movement for 3 weeks is too long time. If the stool stays long time in the colon it will join the blood stream that can cause other severe health issues. I hope you are following proper diet. You need to consult your doctor immediately and have a treatment. Constipation for long time it will cause other health issues. Good Luck.

    There can be things stuck in you for literally years that can’t build up over time and cause you to get constipated. There is a site I found rootsofhealthonline.com that has an incredible product for this called eliminate and its just organic herbs in supplement form this will 100% relieve you and I recommend everyone takes it because who knows what we’ve been storing up in there all these years with our terrible eating habits. I actually first found this site for their acne product which I also use 🙂

    For constipation, medication is only a very temporary solution if it works. Often you get side effects.

    Wheat germ and wheat bran are very high fiber foods that often help for constipation.

    Constipation can cause anal fissures, hemorrhoids and also some far more serious problems as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22rectal+bleeding%22&fr=ush-ans
    .
    You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem.

    For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22castor+oil+for+constipation%22&fr=ush-ans but it is unsuitable for regular use.

    For constipation, suppositories, laxatives, fiber supplements and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods and avoid the wrong foods.

    All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative.

    You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer.

    Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system.

    The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation.

    Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here’s a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems:

    •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats,

    •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk,

    •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc.,

    •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products,

    •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains,

    •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies,

    •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats.
