And as I said in the other post... generally my IBS is worse from 4 days before to 2-3 days into my period; from day 3-5 of my period it's the best of the whole month.------------------JennT

Very true Mike. Coming from a person who has had sensitivty to an overproduction of prostagladins. There is also the theory out there that it might not just be or always is the overproduction of prostagladins but also some people again are just more sensitive to their response on the smooth linings of the organs. I guess this could be explained similiar to different people have different pain thresholds. There are many antagonists to protagladins such as ibuprofin, aleve, etc. and there are definite protagonists such as alcohol and certain foods that will actually help to increase the production of prostagladins.They not only will stimulate uterus but also will stimulate the intestines as well.
