    Hi Kadija, I started to suffer with gastric issues when I first started my peri and ended up with gastritis which has flared up once in while since going through this menopause journey. I never had any issues until peri. I was told that peri and menopause can wreak havoc on our stomachs and can cause many gastrointestinal issues including reflux.
