I gave birth to my son mine weeks ago and I've been having constipation but when I do go it hurts and feels like needles and there blood and I've been experiencing this since I gave birth. I'm on a stool softener twice a day and have used proctofoam but it hasn't seemed to help much but tonight I started having diarrhea. Is this normal for after giving birth our what?

Some women do have issues with their bowels after birth. Are you getting enough fiber and liquids in your diet? That's usually the best thing for postpartum (and pregnancy!) regularity.
