    Do you have IBS? That used to happen to me, but I have IBS, never considered it to be part of peri, but guess it could be. 

    Hope you feel better.

    I get what I call a congested feeling for a couple of days before mine.  It feels like my womb is full and pressing on my bowel, also find I am more towards constipated on these days.  Pain tends to be very low down at either the front of back.

    No I've never been diagnosed with ibs but the only time I really get constipation is right before I get a period.

    I've had that 'backache' for years, but ironically yesterday in particular at the end of a 19 DAY bled!!

    My bowels are very much linked to my emotions. If I'm stressed, they

    clam up for days. Think I've always got a supply of laxatives for this,

    Which ain't good I know.

    Assuming that our changing bowel movements are just another thing we have to grin 'n bear at this time. I just wish I'd had the Martini approach when I were younger - Anytime, Any Place, Anywhere' - just another 'skill'

    Seriously, have you got fibroids? When I experienced pain in back/abdo,

    just before stuggling to pass a stool, Nurse had a feel and said I had a

    'lumpy uterus'. Oh well.Just something else to put on my CV I suppose!)

    Hi Sharcerv - Yes I do think if you get constipated it can give you back pain. I have sciatica & if I get constipated it makes it worse!

    I started taking magnesium 300mg(took this for the muscle pain I had) wow I have never been consipated since!

    As always do see your doctor if you are worried!

      It definitely had a lot to do with my reflux because the night before I had Lasagna and it had crushed red peppers in it. I think it was the tomato paste plus the peppers that did it. Also, today my period came on so that could have caused the discomfort. It only happened that once.
