I'm not sure that small amount will do anything... will it? Someone on my Facebook page also mentioned using coconut oil so I melted 1/3 of a tablespoon into some water and drank it. So far, nothing. Seven days is a long time without going... And I really don't want to end up seeing someone over it. How embarrassing!
I wouldn't hold off to much longer from seeing your dr though. A gal in my first DDC got so constipated she started puking it up

Try liquid aloe. It works pretty well.
