Well like it states, I'm backed up. I gave birth 9 days ago & have had 3 successful bowel movements since. Last night I had the urge to poop so I immediately went tithe washroom to find I'm backed up. I never hold back if I feel I need to go so it was surprising, plus, I'm not taking pain meds anymore. I'm scared to stick anything up there. I can remember being constipated in grade 3 & taking a suppository and by the time it worked, it tore through my butt & hurt soooo bad lol. I've got rectal bleeding from trying last night. I've taken a stool softener, flax seed, drinking plenty of water (warm). I was wondering if you ladies had ANY tips to help out. Like I said I'm not really wanting to stick anything up there :( I have suppositories but that's a last resort. TIA
