Come pregnancy and expect significant changes in the body posture. If that wasn't enough, the increasing belly size with each passing day causes hot flashes, headaches and muscle aches, thanks to hormonal imbalance during pregnancy. It is observed that pregnant women also experience green bowel movement. The normal color of fecal matter is light brown and so excretion of green stools is definitely unacceptable. Is green color of stool attributed to hormonal changes or are there any other causes? Let's find out.

It is perfectly safe to use stool softeners for the young ones, provided, you use them under the supervision of a pediatrician. This is important to avoid the possible side effects. Many people start using stool softener, but as soon as the child begins to have normal bowel movements, immediately cease to use it. This often leads to recurrence of the problem. Unlike adults, children are least likely to become addict to laxatives, hence, it is alright to continue the stool softener for 6 to 8 months. Once the child resumes his normal bowel movements, go on reducing the dosage, instead of stopping it abruptly.
Mineral oil lubricates the stool, thereby facilitating smooth passage of stool and lowering the risk of injury to the rectum and/or anus. It is recommended that mineral oil be consumed at bedtime. In severe cases, it can be consumed with hot water. Don't expect instant results. Expect bowel movement only after 6 to 8 hours of taking mineral oil.
