Since having my second child 12 months ago, I have suffered from really bad constipation. I have seen a GP and she tells me that because my diet is fine, I am active and I drink plenty of water, the cause is most likely hormone related. Has anyone had a similar problem? Apparently it will likely settle once my period returns and until then she suggests taking a daily laxative. I personally feel there is more to it so will be seeing a different doctor soon. Any experiences with constipation and anything that relieved it? Did you become more regular once your period returned?
