Re: bloated and then some

Hi 47something, welcome to the forum!
While I don't have any answers to the bloating, I wanted to say that I have the same thing. I once again missed a period last month, with no sign of one yet this month either. And I continue to have this bloating as well. I've even had some minor breast pain and cramping associated with menses.

Plus if you're not over-weight, please don't lose anymore, as this may cause you to become unhealthy. The weight is not the problem. It's this menpause! I'd bet on it. Your health is most important, and I really believe that this too shall pass!
In this together, ~Karen

Re: bloated and then some

Hi again 47something,
Fiber helps greatly. I try to get it regularly since I was diagnosed with IBS many years ago. I also started taking a supplement called Multi-Enzymes with Probiotics. This helps quite a bit, but I do still get a bloated feeling occasionally. Not sure if this is just peri, my digestive system, or both. Hope this helps!
