Senokot are back again this year working in collaboration with First-Time-Mommy to get the word out about the Senokot Overnight Relief Shopping Spree Sweepstakes. By the time it’s over they will have given away $50,000 in prizes. They’ve also graciously once again agreed to give one of my readers a chance to win right here on the blog. This year it’s your choice of a Kindle Touch 3G, $150 Hyatt Hotel gift card or an iPod Nano!
Before we get into the details I want to reiterate what I said last year in regards to constipation.
Constipation is No Laughing Matter
Whether you like it or not constipation is a very important topic when it comes to expectant and new mothers. Treating your body right & keeping constipation at bay can mean the difference between getting or not getting hemorrhoids. It’s something that you want to prevent if you can. Trust me. I’ve had 3 babies. I had them with my first during a vaginal delivery & I had them with my last after a C-section. Both times, equally as painful. Recovery was much harder because of it. Most women don’t like to admit these things happen but I’m doing so because I don’t want you to have to go through the same thing. It’s definitely a subject you want to research and prevent, so make sure you take it seriously.
So, now that we’ve broached the topic of constipation here are a few words from Senokot:
Senokot® and Senokot-S® Tablets Prove Gentle Overnight Relief
“While Senokot® Tablets provide overnight relief to those who occasionally suffer from constipation, which may be associated with diet, lifestyle changes, or travel, Senokot-S® Tablets can be an option for those who suffer from occasional constipation which may be associated with certain medications.
“Our goal is to make the topic of occasional constipation more mainstream so that people are more open to discussing it with their doctors or pharmacists”, explains Charlene Bailey, Director, Product Management for Purdue Products L.P. According to a recent survey conducted by Russell Research for Purdue Products L.P. in November 2012, of 1,023 women ages 18 and older, 53% of those polled agree that occasional constipation is an embarrassing topic to talk about with friends and family, while almost half also find the topic embarrassing to discuss with physicians and other health care professionals.
The survey revealed many misconceptions about occasional constipation. Forty-one percent of women polled think that occasional constipation is not a condition they need to worry about at their age. Although older adults are more likely to report problems with constipation than younger adults, poor diet, lack of physical activity, certain medications and dehydration can be the cause of the condition at any age.1 In addition, only one in three women knew it could be the result of surgery.2”
