    I doubt you have done any harm whatsoever but if you are still worried, contact your team. It’s what they are there for and NO question is too daft! They have heard just about everything – believe me. Quite a bit of it from ME haha!

    Hi

    I can recomend Dulcolax suppositories and glysarol suppositories and yes use both, within 30 minutes you will be cleared out good and propper.

    Also constipation is a good sign that you are not drinking enough fluids with your milk, two letres a day of water is the minimum you should be drinking.

    Also a word of warning regarding the impaction, no mater how bad it gets don’t use anything to try and dig it out yourself. No spoons or pretending to be a constipated mathemetition any trying to work it out with a pencil and paper, if it gets too bad get yourself to the hospital.

    Lol I haven’t tried “the pick and flick” method yet, but I am getting pretty desperate. Ok will get some dulcolax and I have some suppositories. The thing is, because I have such a dry mouth I am drinking about 4 litres. But I have all symptoms of dehydration headaches etc. Hmmmmmm, any idea? Xxx

    OMG I can’t believe I am going to admit this but I tried the spoon method. Ended up with anal fissures and a Uri Gellar spoon :-@

    Please don’t do it no matter how desperate you are.

    Also a word of caution regarding water, try to just drink tap water as bottled mineral waters do not contain the correct levels of important minerals and salts and people have died from just drinking mineral water because of it.

    Good advice again from Paul. Also, sipping allows you to keep everything ticking over rather than being flooded. We can’t glug down big volumes of liquid anymore. So no entering the yard of ale competition for you!

    Glad you have seen some ‘movement’ Sparkle! there is not a lot worse than being constipated in my opinion. I once went 29 days. I was in hospital on drips with HG (what Kate Middleton had) – about as bad as it can be. I didn’t east or drink for almost 5 months. I had to have it ‘removed’. Worst thing I have ever had.

    I am now totally paranoid about being ‘regular’! I have senna tablets on repeat prescription!

    You must feel so much better 😉
