Menstruation & Diarrhoea

Menstruation & Diarrhoea

Many women suffer from symptoms of diarrhoea during their period. But it doesn’t
have to be accepted as just a normal part of the monthly cycle. There are different
things you can do to alleviate the discomfort so you can feel confident and in control.
Remember to stay well hydrated and a healthy diet and regular exercise can keep
your tummy and your bowels happy all the time — especially during your period.

Should I be concerned about it?

There’s no reason to worry about getting diarrhoea at the same time as your period. About a third of women experience gastrointestinal symptoms around the time of menstruation, including diarrhoea and constipation. If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome you will have a 32% chance of diarrhoea around the time of your period.

If you suffer from menstrual diarrhoea, why not carry IMODIUM® with you as your period approaches.

Is it just before your period starts? Like an indicator?
