Is this SIBO or hormonal imbalance

Posted , 4 users are following.


I am approaching my mid 40s, since my 30s, I began to find that about 2 weeks before my period, my bowels feels very dry and have constipation. And now, I am still struggling to find out, what it is exactly?

I don't know if it is SIBO related (they don't test for SIBO in this country) . I don't have bloating, just feels like inside is dry or something.

And what can I eat that can relieve this constipation.

Does anyone have this dry feeling, along with constipation?

Also, from my mid 30s, I would be sweating a lot when sleep at night and feels hot, just a few days prior to period. This hot does not bother me that much, just the constipation is really what I want cure for.

The doctors here are useless, won't even want to help and they are all men.

Any answers/suggestions would really help.

Many thanks.

    I would suggest to eat fiber cereal, greens (mustard collards green beans salads) always green veggies help me. also dulcolax. but dulcolax can be a little cramping and etc. I used it last week and it did its job but I could not believe what I had in my stomach. but like I said it worked. since I have had my constant urine problems with pains and etc I've been noticing more constipation that's one reason I started eating better but needed to lose weight to. I've lost 7lbs in 3 weeks with using weight watchers. good luck and let me know how this works for you. ty dear

      Hi Debra,

      Thank you for your reply. I don't like taking medication, but sometimes it is necessary, better than let it back up! I also agree with all the green veggies. I recently had some stomach issue, so I was juicing potato juice. Try it, make sure at first you can drink it. I like it cold from the fridge. You can add other veggie like carrots and celery to make it taste better. It has lots of vitamins.

      Apparently, it can kill h-pylori , has lots of vitamin c and you can try to see if it can make you more regular. I mean, everyone body is different. You need to try it for a week or two and see if you feel good with it. You can google the benefits of potato juice, it is pretty good.
