FAQs

Stool softeners are a type of laxative used to treat constipation. They work by reducing the tension of the stools, allowing water and oil to mix into it which causes it to soften. Stools that have been softened are easier to pass, easing symptoms of constipation.

You’re usually able to treat constipation yourself with just a few simple changes to your lifestyle and diet - which you can also try if you’re pregnant.

 

Try increasing the amount of fibre in your diet and the amount of fluid you drink (avoid alcohol) as it may make your stool easier to pass.

 

By increasing the amount of exercise you do, it will improve how often you need to use the toilet.

 

If none of these changes work for your constipation, your doctor or pharmacist might recommend a laxative or an enema, which softens the stool to make it easier to pass.

Constipation can happen for lots of different reasons, it’s a very common condition that happens to almost everyone at one point or another in their lives.

 

Some of the most common causes of constipation include:

 

  • Not enough fibre in your diet
  • Dehydration
  • A change in your diet or lifestyle
  • Some medications, for example, codeine
  • Not being active enough or living a sedentary lifestyle
  • Mental health conditions, e.g. stress, anxiety, depression
