Is it safe to drink diet tea to help you poop if you are pregnant?

I have a major blockage. Is diet tea ok to drink? It has herbs in it that helps you go after a couple of hours.

  • No. :(

    Try some Colace. I was told to take 2, twice a day for blockage.

    You can piggyback some prune juice and decaf tea with that.

  • Prune juice is a tried-and-true method that's very safe while pregnant.

  • I don't know if it is a safe way while pregnant. Really I never knew it made you poop at all. I use green tea. I would suggest supositories to get your bowels moving. You do have to insert them in your rectom, but they work quickly.
