Can someone help with advice for constipation?

I know this may seem rather embarrassing, but more for me than you. I usually go to the bathroom everyday and I haven't gone for the past 3. I ate a lot of food throughout those days and I feel like its all packed up inside of me. I can hear my stomach, but nothing is happening downstairs. I took 2 prunes 6 hours ago and it didn't help. Now I took another 4 and drank lots of water. Should I be able to go in the morning?

A stool softener like Dulcolax might help some. You may need a laxative or a Fleets enema. I understand the embarrassing part, but you really need to get it taken care of quickly...it's more than just uncomfortable. I feel for ya...and hope everything comes out alright (pardon the pun)

Possibly... Just make sure to stop eating all that unhealthy food,that really helps people get constipation.Make sure to drink some water too,I've heard that helps stop it.If nothing happens tomorrow,I would consider getting a laxative to help. (: IM A BELIEBER TOOO!!!!! just sayin.

I always suggest at least three prunes to get things moving. Plus exercise! I know that don't help for the time being but remember exercise in the future helps things move more smoothly.

Sounds like a smart way to handle things. I know this is nutty...I've never eaten a prune. I live plums, though...do they taste similar at all?

*love...not live...who lives plums??!! Stupid auto correct thingy!!

Lol!!!! Well let's put it this way.... my kids love them! They would pick a prune over candy any day! Lol! I actually have to "limit" their intake on them cuz they will eat the whole bag! We personally like Sunsweet with orange essence. We get it at WinCo for like 2 bucks. :0)
I recommend it if you never tried one. (They are sweet though)

Try laxative! That normally helps, and don't worry I've known someone who was constipated for a week.

When I was a kid a thousand years ago, eating prunes was a sure-fire way to solve the problem. It sounds like you've eaten enough, now. Just drink some water and I'll bet by tomorrow you'll be fine.
