I Am constipated & have hemorrhoids from the birth of my child. What medicines can I take that don't have any effects on breastfeeding?

I Am constipated & have hemorrhoids from the birth of my child. What medicines can I take that don't have any effects on breastfeeding?

Constipation.: In this setting, the ideal would be to avoid medication altogether, if possible. I would begin by increasing the amount of fiber in your diet and considering taking a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil, daily. When you do that, you need to increase your fluid intake also.

Aspirin isn't likely: To have a significant impact on shrinking your hemorrhoids. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in bathtub w warm water. There needs to be enough water to submerge anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel ; warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 mins, at least twice a day. There are a number of over-the-counter meds too.
