    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Painful bowel movement

    Hi, not sure if this is where I should post but I really need help.
    I have been constipated for the past few days, and now when I try to go it's too painful- as if it's too big.
    It's excruciating pain and I just can't do it. It's happened twice before and it took everything I had to not pass out. I can't go through that again.
    Is there some sort of suppository I could take to break it up? I've tried Vasolene but that did not help at all.
    I really don't feel I need a laxative, because it's ready to pass and a stool softener wouldn't really help at this point either.
    Help! I'm starting to cramp! I can't really afford to see a doctor right now.
