Gas/Bloating with PMS

Does anyone else have excessive gas/constipation in the days leading up to their period? I've had this for years, and I'm trying not to totally revolt the new guy I'm dating. Is there a medication for this? I thought I saw an ad on tv for a PMS pill that aleviates gas and bloating (Rx only, I think) -- does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Thanks

i don't get bloating but i get the gas. BAD gas. it's kind of funny actually. but not when you're dating a new guy. i've been with my boyfriend for awhile so it isn't so bad. i've never taken any medicine for it though.

There are several over-the-counter remedies for gas and constipation. Gas aids usually have simethicone (such is Gas-X), and fiber therapies (Metamucil, FiberCon, etc) can help the constipation. If your cycle is regular, you can even start them a day or two before you know that your period is due.

Oddly, I seem to experience the exact opposite . . . well at least the exact opposite of constipation . . . my friends also . . . we call them the P.S.'s . . . I'm sure you can figure that out . . . lol . . . but try taking some BEANO or Gas-X . . . maybe that would help
