She has constipation first time since 1 months, before & first time in 17 months she was on antibiotic for mouth infection..We visited doctor and he gave digestive herbal medicine and and Dupbalac one spoon two times a day for 15 days. Still she constipate. We are giving fibre rich product like prune,almond,apple juice,figs,honey etc. and lot of water fluid.Normal food intake....veggi juice, fruits,kichadi make of rice and moong(lenthils) with milk sometime yogurt. She was on breast feeding upto now. Since my wife is pregnant again with 2 months, she almost stop breast feeding except one time at night. No chocolates, no dairy or packed foods.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
