Timjan for constipation when preggies - please reply??

Hi all, do you think it would be ok for me to take Timjan when I'm pregnant. It is the MOST brilliant thing for constipation and works wonders for me but i dont want to chance it with be being pregnant now. For those of you who havent heard of Timjan its a herbal aloe vera drink (with the most AWEFUL taste ever!!!) and you get it at dischem or bottle stores. Its got alcohol in it but you only take a teaspoon of it every other night. Please advise. I'm dying here!!!!!

Look at the attached leaflet or ask the pharmacists selling. If it contains alcohol my advise would be to not use it

Hi there

Don't even try to take it also states that not to be used during pregnancy and how old is your preggie? I advice u to drink lot of water, eat prunes, dry grapes and wholewheat cereals.

Constipation is normal during pregnancy and if it persists talk to gynae he will prescribe something good 4 u.

Good Luck!!!

Constipation is normal and you can have it the rest of your pregnancy.I also still suffer from it and i'm 27 wks.

No , no , I don't think you have to take it since it's also work as a laxative. I suggest to ask your dr or go to the chemist they'll advice on something safe.
Try to drink lots of water or have some prunes as a snack
also for breakfast you must have cereals with more fibre in it.

Hope it helps. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!!

Hi Shelley,

I would not use Timjan simply because it contains alcohol. Does the bottle specify what the volume of alcohol is? Consuming any amount of alcohol could be dangerous to the baby. Are you drinking enough water and taking enough fibre (fruits, veg and wholewheat breads) ? How far are you?
