Most prenatals don't contain stool softeners, so it shouldn't be a problem to find one that doesn't have it. I just used Kroger brand...basically, you just want to make sure you're getting enough folic acid and iron. The good thing about
iron is that it can be constipating, which is why some prenatals have stool softeners!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly,
40mg 30mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
