Is it risky to take laxative to treat constipation after embryo transfer?

i had an embryo transfer 6 days ago (hence an anaesthetic 8 days ago) and have been tot constipated since. I am desperate as all y doctors say I should eat Fibergel and lactulouse which I do since 6 days but nothing. I have pain and so much air it is really painful > Ican't breathe after eating something and feel queasy. I have taken 4 times glycerol suppositories but nothing.
Can it really be that risky for embryo to take laxatives instead of getter to this point?! All my doctors have tot denied me any Ducolax etc.
