Do consult your doctor, if you are planning to take a commercial stool softener. It would be better to opt for a natural remedy to avoid any side effects. If you do experience any side effect, it would be best to inform your doctor.
In most cases, defecating green feces during pregnancy is something one should not worry about and so a trip to the doctor isn't necessary. It is usually the food or extra iron consumption that causes green bowel movement during pregnancy. After delivery, reducing the consumption of green vegetables and stopping the intake of supplements often works to restore normal stool color. However, if that doesn't help, seeking medical advice at the earliest is recommended.
Darkening of the stool, is pointing towards internal bleeding in the organs of upper gastrointestinal tract such as the stomach. However, in some cases, blood leaking from lower gastrointestinal tract can also cause stool to appear bright red or black.
Now, if someone asks you, 'are stool softeners safe?', you can safely say, 'they are'. Although stool softeners are safe, it is recommended that they are taken under medical supervision only. At the same time, it is also important that your health care professional is aware of the medicines you are on, so as to avoid any health complications.
