Can I use Senna if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before taking any products that contain Senna.

Constipation is common during pregnancy, but medical professionals usually prefer that you manage constipation by changing your diet or other lifestyle choices.

If this does not work, then you may be recommended a laxative, but do not take one unless specifically advised to do so by your doctor, nurse, midwife, or pharmacist.

What is constipation?

Constipation isn’t just about not being able to go to the toilet - rather, it describes a collection of symptoms that include hard, pellet-like stools; excessive straining, a sensation that you are unable to go, and a decrease in bowel movements.

 

The source of constipation varies, but it could be caused by medication, lack of fibre, dehydration, stress, exercise, hormones, or ignoring the urge to go to the toilet.

 

However, it’s important to remember that constipation is subjective to the individual, and it’s very normal to not have a daily bowel movement.
