I'm constipated but my parents won't let me get laxatives?

I'm constipated but my parents won't let me get laxatives? Topic: I'm constipated but my parents won't let me get laxatives?
June 20, 2019 / By Joahaz
Question: I've tried everything, all the home remedies, I haven't gone in 24 hours because nothing as worked to soften it, it hurts terribly and I believe it's time to try and over-the-counter laxative, but when I told my parents, they flat out told me no, and said that my body will fix itself and eventually I'll go on my own. This is honestly extremely painful and I don't think it's a good idea to force it out, but my parents refuse to provide me with anything. What can I do? Obviously, I have no way to get to the store on my own, or else it wouldn't be a problem.

You are probably not getting enough water in your system, along with the prunes or green beans, other fruits ect. While uncomfortable this is not critical, and should resolve in a week or less. If it goes longer than a week then your parents should find out why, and perhaps get you a laxative. Some times taking a day to just drink water and not eat for several hours and go for a long walk, will make things move better. Exercise usually gets things moving fairly quickly. That is why I said go for a walk. Anything else would be too uncomfortable to do. Just make sure there is a bathroom along the way, just in case.

Laxatives can give you terrible cramps, too. I personally avoid them. To counteract constipation, you need plenty of fiber and lots of water in your diet. If you can't eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, then you can supplement your diet with fiber through other means. There are products you can buy at the drugstore, like FiberCon, or you can go to the health food store and get natural products. Either way, it will take time. Having said all that, if you haven't seen a doctor, you might want to schedule a checkup if this problem continues. You could have an intestinal blockage rather than just simple constipation.

My child suffers from constipation alot. What I do for her is add fiber to her drinks. Benefiber (green bottle)or fibersure (has a blue bottle) is what I use. It has no taste, grittiness, thickness or odor to it. It should start to work for you in a few hours. Basically how it works is it brings water to your stool so you can naturally use the bathroom, easily. If you take too much you'll get the runs for a short while. I would take two servings at once to get things moving along. Just make sure to take with plenty of water. Usually with a laxative it takes 12 to 24 hours to work. I don't personally care for laxatives cause they sometimes can cause cramping so I found alternatives with the fiber or suppositories. Another thing you can try is a suppository (should be in the same area you bought the laxative).. Suppositories can get you pooping in about 15 minutes or less sometimes. Do you feel like you have to poop or are you just concerned that you didn't poop in a day or two and think that your constipated? If you feel like you have to poop then try the suppositories, it will bring it down. If your just concerned that you haven't moved your bowels in a day or two and you don't have any discomfort that doesn't mean your constipated, you just don't have to go right now, that's all.

Have you tried cutting off a small nugget of soap (plain ivory or glycerine soap, nothing else!) and pushing it up your butt with vaseline? It has a combined lubricant and irritant effect (possibly strong irritant) - it'll make you do a big s.h.i.t in 20 minutes or less!

Your parents have the right idea of trying to protect you from: skin disease, cancer, skin tags, moles, freckles, discolorations from sunscreens, lotions, etc. and the more you do, the more they get larger, darker & bumpier. and getting wrinkles skin too soon. My grand daughter, even though my DIL spray her with sunscreen, it doesn't work, she now have 6 moles and she's only 6 years old. I've been protecting myself from the sun since I was 9. 1. Because I don't want to look like a farmer. 2. Because I get too hot. 3. I want to look like movie stars & models, they have blemish-free skins. Example: models @ the Ralph Lauren fashion show, they all have flawless complexion. 4. I don't want to look like an old prune or get moles on my neck & face like my aunts. No matter, I still got Discoid Lupus (Google it), caused from the sun. It took 12 years for them to fade. Tried all kinds of lotions that were prescribed to me, and none of them worked. More & more now I protect myself and I take my wide brim hat everywhere I go, or use an umbrella. In Asia, they use umbrella all the time. Here in the States, people started to catch on, and I see people walking w/umbrella, they are used on the beach, and they sell patio umbrellas. It was invented for a reason and also to protect us from getting skin cancer. Best sunscreen: wear dark, thicker clothing, floppy hat,, or sun clothing embedded with UPF 50, or umbrella (which protects you up to 80% of the UV rays that cause sun damage penetrate clouds, according to the EPA).. They were invented to protect us from the elements. The sun is more powerful than most people think! Take the Skin Picture Quiz - Identify These Common Skin Conditions on MedicineNet. I'm almost 62 years old now, with flawless skin. 25% of the sun damage occurs by age 18. To understand what I'm saying: Google How I Finally Wised Up About the Sun May 9, 2014. If you’re pale and you tan, Goldie Hawn is a good example what tanning does to your skin (photo #30 below).

Or Google Catherine Zeta Jones - she's 44 with beautiful skin. Watch The Duchess - Keira Knightly has flawless complexion - a natural beauty. Camryn Grimes on the Young & the Restless, she’s 24. Taylor Swift is another starlet with beautiful skin, in her 20's. Nicole Kidman has flawless skin (barely wears makeup) or Julianne Moore, who is 7 yrs. younger than me!
