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.
How to manage it
Diarrhoea doesn’t have to be accepted as just a normal part of the monthly cycle. If you suffer from diarrhoea during your period, there are several things you can do to manage your condition.
