  1. Women's Health Issues
    I have noticed that my IBS is at it's worst the week before my period starts. From doing some research I have found lots of people find this and it can perhaps be linked to the drop in your hormones at this stage of your menstrual cycle. Therefore I was wondering whether taking the...
  2. General Discussion
    Hi - I would love some advice. Have any of you had success with hormone supplementation to help with IBS? It would be great to hear ideas on what has been helpful. Thanks!!
  3. General Discussion
    Hi everyone - I am wondering if anyone out there has done much research on what it know about the influence of hormones on IBS for women. It is well known that symptoms often are worse at different times in the menstral cycle and I have seen some research that HRTs can increase IBS symptoms -...
  4. Welcome!
    Hi Everyone, While Ive been suffering from IBS-C for about six years, I was only recently given the diagnosis. Until then I was reliant on my ND to help with homeopathic remedies, that were for a long time useful. Unfortunately, nothing good ever lasts forever, so I decided to trust my GI...
  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Not sure if this is common or not-- no one I know has had this happen before, but my IBS has caused me to stop menstruating! My PCP refused to believe that I wasn't pregnant ( I told them I skipped my period for a couple months and was nauseous all the time LOL) and made me take several...
  6. Young Adult's Issues
    New poster here, have never posted on an internet forum before and looking forward to some good feedback. Hi, I'm a 24 year old female currently almost 3 weeks into a severe IBS episode. I have IBS that fluctuates from diarrhea to constipation and is exacerbated by anxiety and certain trigger...
  7. Women's Health Issues
    Hi all, from a new poster but not-so-new "lurker" I'm Shari from California. My IBS is the mixed kind; I think the term is IBS-M ? Fortunately I don't always have issues, but when I do have issues, sometimes they involve diarrhea & sometimes they involve constipation. There's a semi-long...
  8. Women's Health Issues
    I will be 50 this year and for the last few months my period has been playing hide and seek. I have noticed my IBS symptoms have gotten worse. This really scares me because I have been very successful managing my IBS so far and nothing is working right now. It looks like what has been working...
  9. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hey everyone, It's been three years of constant symptoms now (Im now 20) and I don't know what to do! Wondering if anyone else has experienced bloating premenstrually, or has polycystic ovary syndrome and has ibs? Could they be related? Anything that can be done to alleviate the symptoms...
  10. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Hey everyone! I wouldnt normally post on here, but I'm so down and need help :( Noticed a few posts on here about bloating, but few to do with hormones? IBS began when I was 17 - just before my period, premenstrual symptoms. Starting taking contraceptive pill, Microgynon - and immediately I...
  11. Women's Health Issues
    Hey ladies, I've just started considering the connection between IBS and hormones since I noticed a sharp increase in IBS attacks right before my period starts. I've been on the Nuvaring for a little more than a year, and I chose it because it has such a small dose of hormones (I had previously...
  12. Welcome!
    Hello! I'm new to the forums and after a lot of research online I thought I'd ask some fellow sufferers for some advise. Am I the only one that suffers from IBS-C symptoms being triggered by that time of the month? If I'm not paying attention to the calendar, my body lets me know when I'm a few...
