Do any of you get heartburn/reflux issues around your monthly? I have been getting heartburn ever since I entered peri but it seems that when I am ovulating I get it worse than other times. My GI said that the receptor sites for progesterone and estrogen are located along the digestive tract which why we experience such digestive upsets during hormonal fluctuations.
I had a c section two years ago and during that procedure the OB had to scrape scar tissue from my bowels which formed there from a previous abdominal surgery. When I explained my experience to my current GYN, he said anytime there is manipulation to the bowels it can result in things like having heartburn. The bowels are very sensitive and don't react well to being tampered with. Oh boy!
