Question Menopause and IBS

Has anyone heard if IBS being worsened by menopause, lately my periods have been irregular and the ibs is raging(diarrhea). ALSO, does anybody feel the IBS is like resetting a clock, sometimes you can (by using imodium, equalatin, eating rice, citracil, caltrate, and deep breaths or whatever--all in some miracle formula that works)-- and do pretty well for months, then BOOM it hits for months,(stress and/or some food or drink combo) nothing you do will stop it?

Hi gurggles,

I can't really relate to the menopause but I believe IBS does worsen during women's periods - at least a lot of women have reported this. (I'm a guy).

I can relate to having a "miracle formula" and then having things change on me for a long period of time causing things to revert to what is "normal" for an IBS patient.

Cheers, Raju.
