  • Black licorice! It was recommended by a nurse or a doctor (can't remember) after I had my c-section, because I was super constipated... and it worked wonders!

  • get a bottle of magnesium citrate at Walmart walgreens wherever...drink the whole bottle after work and you should go by morning...not much cramping. you definitely don't want that to continue...if you get a blockage, or have a blockage, you're going to be in trouble.

  • Doctor to my girl with lots of constipation and only 6. and has been on it since 4 so very safe. Mirlax.

  • Be careful of dieter's tea; I took it once and it was very hard on my system. Too harsh for me.

    Magnesium citrate works really well. Also, incorporate some organic, unsulphured black strap molasses into your diet (a tablespoon after dinner each nite should suffice). It has numerous health benefits, is full of magnesium and iron.
