It might be "stress" Korga, but if you read the article you will see hormones themselves can be a trigger for many of us.
I think it is the extra stress.

The IBS is so much worse before and during menstrual periods due to elevated prostaglandins...they are responsible for inflammation and a vast array of other uncomfortable things. Check good 'ol Wikipedia...it explains a lot just type in prostaglandins.

Sounds very frustrating... I also sometimes have opposite reactions to what I'm given. Have you read through much on the "Diet" forum? For instance, prune juice is high in one of the fermentable starches (FODMAPs) that can set some of us off... but there's more and better info elsewhere. I'm very new to the forum, and I've only just begun trying a low-FODMAP intervention, but my colon has been behaving nicely the past few days. Fingers crossed here, and...Best wishes for better health!
I have dealt with ibs all my life because it runs in the family. I had a colonoscopy done about a year ago and nothing turned up. My doctor told me to take stool softeners at night and then miralax in the morning. This worked great for several months and now it doesn't. What am I doing wrong. I had to drink over 3 glasses not cups of prune juice to get a bowl movement. When the doctor told me to take milk of magnesia after a surgery I had to take two bottles of it for it to work. What can I do? My Mom has these problems but she tells me what works for her and it doesn't help me then she thinks I don't listen to her. I just think I have it worst than she does. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
