I am 12 weeks pregnant, and for the past three months, I have severe constipation. I consulted the doctor, and she suggested me to take Duphalac syrup. I tried, but there is of no use. The same problem persists. Will it affect my unborn baby?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Constipation is common in the early stages of pregnancy. It is due to the chemical increasing in your body, which is required for your baby to grow. So the baby is fine, no need to worry about it.
For constipation, I suggest you should take Duphalac syrup two tea spoon at night every day. And if it is not working, then take two times a day. Do not drink cold water, drink lukewarm water.
Drink more water three to five liters per day. Eat green leafy vegetables more. It is the only solution. I hope this helps.
