Prune juice... Does it work?


Hi girls

I've read that prune juice helps move your bowels. Anyone had any success with it?

I haven't been the toilet for so long and I'm in pain, even thou I've been eating veg etc. So I've bought some prune juice in hope this will work. How much should I drink daily? How fast will it work? Thanks girls xx

YESSSSS It works! and I had some issues going to the restroom a few weeks ago.. I bought a bottle (non name brand Prune Juice) My mom told me it works best if it's heated slightly... So I put in the microwave for 30 seconds.. and drank it.. Within two hours I was going to the restroom... So I drank another cup.. I think I drank a total of 3 cups (8ounces a peice) nothing more! lol but the next day I went to the restroom and I felt so much better!

I couldn't handle the taste but then a friend recommended syrup of figs which you can get at Boots or any chemist - worked like a dream!

Hope you all feel better really soon! Xx

I drank some during pregnancy. I had the individual cans and they were 5.5oz each. I would mix it with equal parts water and drink it all at once. It usually had me going in a few hours. For me the taste isn't bad. Not great, but I dont find it hard to drink! Just dilute it, because I found drinking it full strength gave me a stomach ache
