Probobly! If you have just started then it can take sometime to kick in and soften the stool. Dont worry, eat healthily, drink lots of water and take in olive oil or flaxseed oil. I have the same problem and my stool is quite impacted. I did three weeks of panchakarma and spent the last three weeks doing ayuvedic Oil Enema
s and taking triphala every night and is just starting to come out slowly. If you do these enemas, my doctor says unrefined seseme oil is good to use becaue it spreads easily throught the colon. Tripaha is also very good (for me anyway) if you can find the powder, try that instead.
