Embarrassing bathroom question.....

Hi....

I used to always be constipated, and then once I got my thyroid regulated, that went away.

Now my probelm is that my BM's are softer, like "Mushy" (ick, I know) and it takes me forever to clean.....UGH

If I take Metamucil or something, will that help?

Re: Embarrassing bathroom question.....

Metamucil contains psyllium and certainly will bulk up your stool. But, psyllium is a natrual fiber that is brokendown by digestion and ferments -- producing alot of gas when you first start using it. The gas will go away with contined use--- but start off slow.

I use the Equate brand from Wal Mart that is also psllium--

I wish youwell~~~Harry
