I have the same problems, I somehow get worse, but different pain afterwards, plus extra bloating, gas and constipation, also I get migraines towards the end. Sorry, I really cant explain it, all I can say is that you are not alone. I cant live with all these worsened symptoms before, during and after my period. I get maybe 2.5 days where the pain is mildy bearable and I can stay out of bed for more than an hour. Because of this I have started to take birth control pills to hopefully decrease some symptoms. Boy, I know it cant get worse except for the first 2 months, but it will hopefully be worth it after that.Have you considered BC ... it could help balance out your hormones.Hope this helps.

HI! I too have problems with my IBS especially after or during my period. I get bloated so badly thaat I get cramps and spasms and can barely move at times. It's no fun ladies, as I'm sure we can all relate to. Can I ask you ladies if your period is a little darker in colour when it furst begins?

well most my symptons increase during my peroid....i guess it depends on the person...i think itsd relatively normal....its logical i guess...our downstair parts are moving more than normal....probably encourages our bowel activities to increase.
