My concern is that the constipation was happening in between pregnancies (when things should have been getting back to normal). I'd like to know if your doctor has checked your thyroid function levels. Hypo-thyroid can cause constipation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pain behind eye, threw up alot. I've been constipated for about 2 days. Do I need to take a laxative or enema? Or nothing since I threw up?

Go see your doctor: Because you live in australia, i don't know what's available over there with(out) a prescription so best to go see your doctor (who can also check for hypothyroidism).

Consider polyethylene glycol (available here in states w/o prescription), magnesium citrate, lactulose, senna, etc. ...Read more

I toke two laxative two night ago an yesterday i felt sick so did a fleet enema an it only got small amount out i stay constipated?
Constipation: Not sure what laxative you used. Normally, i would recommend the patient to have adequate hydration, stay active with exercising, eat high fiber diet. In addition, add fiber supplement such as citrucel (one table spoon in 8 oz of water daily). If the above is not improved, add MiraLAX (otc, one table spoon in 8 oz of water, daily to bid). Other agents are linzess, amitiza. Work close with drs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
