I began eating Activia yogurt, only one every other day, I came down with severe constipation so bad that I felt like my butt was ripped to shreds, I had to sit on toilet for hours in so much pain I started sweating. There was lots of blood just to pass a tiny bit, and it felt like I was giving birth. I also started drinking a lot of ginger ale lately and water. I took laxatives for 2 days before the dam broke so to speak. Now having stomach ache and the pain in my butt is raw. I also have gas and bloating. I read a lot of bad reviews about Activia yogurt and have stopped eating it, but does drinking ginger ale help or hurt this problem?
