Stool Softeners! They're in the laxative aisle. Buy the generic Docusate Sodium 100MG's. They are perfectly harmless. Ask the pharmacist if you have any concerns. Metamucil or Citrucel would help a lot too. Lots of fiber.
Start with one stool softener at night. If that doesn't soften your stools go up to two a night. I know people that are on FIVE a night, but they're a lot older, and I really don't think you'll ever need that many. These are not addictive, and you will not need to take more and more. Perfectly safe, and they do the job.
Still do drink lots of water, eat lots of fruit and dark leafy veggies. Veggies in general! Frozen, raw, or steamed. You should have an apple or pear every day, WITH the peeling.
Also, you must exercise. I'm talking at least 25 minutes of cardio 5-6 days a week. Walking briskly is perfect! Or running, jogging, swimming, treadmill, stationary bike, or DANCING!! Any of those without stopping. You should work up a sweat. I know exercising is a drag, but if you do it to music or TV you'll be so glad when you see the results! Be sure to stretch before and after.
Do all of the above, and you will be one happy girl! ;)
Get some Metamucil fiber pills(which is what i use), or Benefiber. You can mix the Benefiber with any drink or even put it in food and theres no taste at all. Ive used it too. But either of these are sure to help if you take them regularly.
Yeah Benefiber is good if taken the right way. If it continues to hurt the only other thing i can tell you is to go see a doctor. They will prescribe something that will help out!
Well you really should check with your doctor. He or she can help with this and write up a prescription.
