Hi welcome to H.C.M.Forum, when you are so eager to have pregnancy, it is better not to use any drugs, till you become pregnant, and crosses 1st trimester. because one should avoid all other drugs other than ante natal drugs in the 1st trimester. it is safe. you can use when there is necessory, with the advise of a gynaecologist. thank you.

If you are not habitual of kayam churna then i would not advice you to take it for your constipation . Once you start taking it , you will have to take it daily . So better to start with some mild lexatives like harde , isabgul.

Regarding the chances of pregnancy , as per my opinion it can not harm much in getting pregnant but it is surly a contraindicated medicine after pregnancy . lexatives are contraindicated during pregnancy . Better to take any ayurveda medicine under the moderation of ayurveda specialist .
