Proctologist 's  Response
pregnacy induced constipation is a known fact in 30% of females,
dont worry, after delivery it will get solved as the pressure of the uterus on your colon will get relieved.
for the time being, it is advisable to take Gutclear (lactulose) 15ml once at night.
Ask your Gynaecologist before taking any online advice.
it is advisable to meet a colon-rectal surgeon & proctologist in your area for precise inspection, diagnosis and treatment.
take care.
