Our expert says:
You may have a spastic colon (irritable bowel syndrome) if with all the tests no other causes were identified. IBS is a chronic condition, which one can manage but usually not "heal". Safe medications to use during pregnancy include prune juice, Lactulose and Fybogel orange or other generic soluble fibre. The ideal is to have a colonoscopy to see if you have any signs of inflammation but you may have to wait until after your baby is born. Inflammatory bowel diseases however usually cause fever, weight loss, pain, blood in the stool and anemia.
