Enter to win and Take Control with Dulcolax #OwnTheThrone


As women we have to deal with a lot in our lives!

Possibly more than men as it is often difficult to discuss some of the issues we are dealing with. Many times I have wanted to ask questions but knew it would not be looked at as “lady like” so I kept it to myself. Bodily functions or dysfunctions is one of these issues. You know many are suffering and trying to find the answers and resources they need, but with nobody talking it is tough. Constipation is one of these subjects. Medication, child birth, diet, life changes, these all add to changes in our digestive systems and bowels. Changes many of us are not prepared for and have no idea how to fix.

Dulcolax laxatives wants women to take control. Their predictable, overnight relief to help you take control and “own the throne”. Take it before bed so it can work gently and there are no ms rushes to go to the restroom while out.


With 1 in 4 Canadians suffering from symptoms of constipation, it is a problem that often impacts Canadians quality of life. In fact, the Dulcolax Bowel Health Poll found that almost one-third of Canadians found that constipation interferes with their quality of life and some Canadians (14%) feel they are wasting time on something that should just work on its own.

  • According to The Canadian Digestive Heath Foundation constipation is defined by infrequent or difficult bowel movements. The Dulcolax® Bowel Health Poll finds that one in seven Canadians feel their bowel movements are inconsistent and over one in nine feel their bowel movements are uncomfortable2.
  • Whether you go once or up to four times a day, everyone’s “regular” can be different – its how your body feels.

This is not only an uncomfortable topic to discuss, but also an uncomfortable problem one to deal with. Often causing physical pain and making it so the sufferer can not lead a normal, active life. There is definitely  stigma around bathroom discussions. Nearly three quarters of Canadians actively avoid ‘going’ in public places – proof that it’s not something we’re comfortable with even though everyone does it and most Canadians think bowel health is important. Many are not even talking to their Dr about their problems.


What can you do to take control?

Canadians should be aware of their routine and if there is any change, take note. Talk to your Dr or pharmacist and visit www.dulcolax.ca for more information about bowel health and treatment options.

Did you know May is digestive month? This is the perfect time to start taking control.
