First timer, day two, and having a big, bowel-related issue. Thinking about quitting.
I started yesterday. I took a laxative the night before (a pill. I now know those are a no-no and, should I continue, I should get the tea), and was awakened at 4:30 am with cramping, followed by several eliminations (semi solid). I drank the lemonade throughout the day, was ravenous all day, but I made it. Took the laxative again before bed. But woke up this morning with no real elimination. Just a small ammount of liquid once, a very small ammount. So I decided to do the SWF (*shudder*). It was awful but I got it down. Then waited for a movement. But all I get are small.... surprises. I'm terrified to move cause it seems that everytime I do, something happens that I have NO control over. Which is humiliating. I've always had normal healthy movements. But, having these surprises is too much for me. It's been two hours since the SWF and I'm still having surprises. And the small elimination I had before the SWF was a surprise as well. I can't take this anymore. Any advice or has anyone had this happen before? I'm tempted to eat some thing solid so I have "control" again! And in the spirit of this TMI post, the movements are electric yellow water and BURNING. Is this a normal experience??

I'm no expert but I am on day 9 of my first MC. I would recommend the tea. It works good and I never had any cramping until last night which really wasn't too bad but I think it may have had to do with me upping the cayenne to 1/2 tsp. recently. It went away after the SWF and I feel great today. With the tea I've had no problem with the eliminations. Of course everyone is different. The yellow burning elimination is a good thing as it's one of the detox symptoms. Sorry I couldn't be more help.Good luck.
