    Dear Marisol

    Cramps and irregular bowel movements are both very common in perimenopause.

    I don't suffer from cramps other than 3-4 days up to and during my (irregular) period but I know all about strange bowel movements... For weeks I ran 2-3-4 times in the morning and again after lunch.

    Now my mornings are more quiet and more solid but I still have bouts of urgent, watery bowel movement a couple of times a week.

    It is all due to fluctuating hormones.

    Hey marisol! Very normal indeed! Currently, I just skipped a couple of periods, however, all my symptoms are amplified. So help me god, when this nightmare is finally over...I want to hold rallies to raise awareness for this. Not like dry vagina and hot flashes either...I mean like the 500 other symptoms!

    Hi Marisol, I have been post menopause for several years now, and yet I still get pain when I should be ovulating, and then have period pains at the end of the conti hrt pack for several days. I asked the doctor why this should be the case and his very honest answer was that he didn't know! As for the toilet situation, yes these are also symptoms that appear to come and go. By the way, I am 62, and have had more problems in the last 2/3 years with the many menopause symptoms than I ever had before in perimenopause. I am a market researcher, and I speak to many women who have had symptoms for a lot longer and who are older than me. Not positive, I know, but factual and realistic.
