Our expert says:
Generally, laxatives are avoided in pregnancy unless simples measures such as diet and exercise fail to correct constipation. The problem with most over-the-counter medications in pregnancy is that there are no large studies documenting their safety, since few pregnant women are willing to participate.
If you really battle with constipation, ask your doctor or pharmacist to suggest a safe STOOL SOFTENER.
