Hello doctor,

I am 32 years old. I delivered a baby two months ago. My issue is that due to hard motion, there is blood. I am taking Anuloma DS tablet. If I stop taking the tablet, again my motion will be hard and bleeding is there. Shall I take this medicine regularly as the baby is small? So help me.



Welcome to

Definitely, you should be careful about medications whatever you are taking during the lactation period. Because it may affect the baby's health. During pregnancy and after delivery constipation is a common issue. You should try to manage it naturally. Anuloma DS is a good ayurvedic proprietary medicine which acts as a laxative. But it contains senna. Senna may cause motion to baby also. You can take Triphala Churna (Amlaki, Haritaki, Vibhitaki) 0.11 oz or two tablets with warm water after meals. Along with this you should change your lifestyle and food habits. Also, do regular Yoga and exercise. It helps to regulate your metabolism and bowel movement too.
