Hello, Ive been having bowel movement trouble the last few weeks. I've increased my fiber intake and water in hopes this will help. I've noticed Ive been dehydrated lately when I go to the bathroom. On Tuesday, I took a laxative and 6 hrs later I was pooping. Last night, Thursday, I took another one cause I noticed I was still having trouble; I'd go to the bathroom and I can feel it in there, but its too hard to push it out. I woke up this morning (over 6 hrs after taking the laxative) and nothing. I've been noticing too that I pee a lot when I go, but my system doesn't give me the "I gotta go pee" feeling. This started occurring yesterday. The laxative I took says it takes 6-12 hrs for it to take affect, however, the last time I took it, it hit me at 6 hrs.
I know I should wait til the 12 hr mark, but I'm getting worried. I've increased fiber and water intake the last 3 days. The laxative also says to take more if a single dose isn't effective.I don't know what to do, please help. I don't know what to do or what's going on with me.
