This is for all the ladies out there. Does your reflux get worse just a few days before or during your period? I noticed that a few days before my cycle starts, my reflux symptoms are horrible in spite of the diet. And then during the time, I actually have almost no relfux. Any similar experiences?

    Yes mine does very much so and also during ovulation. Its to do with the change in estrogen levels apparently. I was wondering whether there was some natural product I could take to even out my hormone levels but haven't started looking onto yet
