Hi there. I m 7w, 3d pregnant with my first child. I have typical digestive issues, usually in the form of diarrhea, due to gallbladder removal a few years ago and a more recent appendectomy seemed to only make those symptoms worse. I haven t had a bowel movement in over a week and now cannot, despite the urge. I ve been trying for hours over the past few days, but only pass small amounts of liquid matter, no hard stool. There is a decent amount of blood mixed in. I ve tried Milk of Magnesia and Glycerin suppositories as suggested by my doctor with no relief. What can I do?

Hi doctor, I m a 28 year old, usually healthy female. I have a gynefix in situ, my period was due on Monday, i have only experienced spotting since then and am having some very strange (for me) experiences. I am so tired that I didn t get out of bed until 14:45 today. I did get up in the night projectile vomiting . I have been getting mild cramps , nausea and have been feeling light headed occassionally over the last few weeks. My bowel movements flip between diarrhoea and constipation . I keep getting achy and in work feeling like I m going to pass out. It feels as though there is something there when I lie on my side at night and for almost 2-3 months I have felt like something is stuck or caught when I bend down and stand up too quickly. I went to a walk in centre last month and was advised to go to the hospital incase it was an ectopic pregnancy . They kept me for 5 hours in A&E, did a blood test and said I should be refered by my GP to a gynaecologist , however, I haven t heard anything! My periods are usually heavy, last months was but this month it is just spotting so far. What would you recommend I do?

I have been constipated for a few days. My friends and I decided to go on a hiking trip. During the hike, I was okay, but after my stomach really was upset. My boyfriend gave me laxatives, and even though they worked for the constipation , my body started to ache and my head started hurting. I m taking a lot of fluids, but I m not eating much, since my stomach is still bubbly. What could I have and how can I get better?
