Re: Diarrhea after Menstrating!?
Hi, the reason why a female can have diarrhea is because of the hormonal changes that occur after ovulation and before menses, the bowels can experience cramping and lead to diarrhea. Also the same muscles that are contracting to move the blood and tissue are in the same area as those that control a female's bowels. You are right it is normal and common. Also the hormones that signal the release of the lining of the uterus also signal the gastro system making a female's bowels move more. A sudden, short illness or even a longer illness can cause a female's periods to be delayed. This is usually temporary.
