IBS-like symptoms

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi ladies,

I was wondering if any of you experience IBS symptoms during ovulation or leading up to your period? I've been having this off and on since last month's period. It's not diarrhea or constipation just gas, bloating, mild cramping, pressure in lower stomach/pelvic area, soft BM's (sorry if too much details). Anyone else have this?

      Hi sharcerv, yes I have the same problems which makes my anxiety worse. Sometimes I feel I'm going to be incontinent and need to squeeze my rectum muscles 😱It's so inconvenient and embarrassing. It happens to me even when I'm sitting up in bed at night reading. My anxiety makes the symptoms worse so I'm up and down to the toilet all night

      Ahh when will it end 🙈🙉xx
