  • I make sure to eat your fiber and lots of water. Also I think Midol helps with that.
    good luck!

  • Midol is my best friend during that time of the month, the cramps make me really tense. I eat lots of fruit and drink lots of water to help "move things along".

  • Miralax (or the store generic brand) always works. It's gentle, not like a laxative that will make you not want to leave the house lol. We keep it on hand at all times. My ds has had to use it on and off since he was 2. You mix it in anything, you can't taste it. But usually before i need to use that I can eat a fiber one bar and that usually helps.

  • I actually tend to go the other way with bowel troubles during my "time of the month".
