    Default Constipated!

    Hi all

    any ideas to relieve constipation during pregnancy?

    Also how do you know if the yoghurt is pasterurised and safe to eat?

    I assume yoghurt would say on the box or packaging and as far a constipation goes - licorice ALL.THE. WAY. Was all that worked for me.

    it doesn't state on the yoghurt. Ingrdients: milk, milk solids......
    it contains live culture. having cravings for it but not sure if it's safe

    Yoghurt is made from milk & all milk sold in Australia is pasteurised. If its from the supermarket, it's fine.

    As for constipation, bran, prunes, licorice & psyllium husks. I've also been recommended Fybogel by an ob & have taken Coloxyl tablets which worked a treat.

    Yoghurt is fine

    All-Bran is great, as are tinned pears.

    Any packaged yoghurt should be fine. I'd only be cautious of home-made yoghurt from farm-fresh milk.

    Constipation...depends how bad.
    Lots of high-fibre foods, water & exercise. If that's not enough, prune juice is supposed to be good. Aand if it's really bad, you can get stool-softeners etc. from pharmacies (and possibly supermarkets).

    Constipation has been awful for me, I've recently switched to vitamins with no iron as my iron level has been fine from the start. So far so good. Benefibre is also helpful and safe.

    Yoghurt is absolutely fine as all our milk is pasteurized. Yoghurt is also good for the bowel

    If food doesn't work I was given lactolose $8 over the counter - the doc gave it to me works a treat and within hours
