    Question for women with acid reflux

    Does your acid reflux and heartburn get worse and more aggivating right before and during your monthly cycle?
    I have noticed over the last few months that a day or two before my cycle starts my heartburn gets worse. I get a really bad burning, gnawing pain in my stomach, usually around my belly button area is the worst.
    During my period it is also pretty bad. Everything I eat and drink doens't taste right, I can feel this nasty, bitter taste in the back of my throat the whole time I'm eating and nothing I eat tastes good.
    I have heartburn throughout the month but why is it always worse come that time of the month?
    Any one else have this problem?

    I was advised by my GI that the progesterone increases during the monthly cycle and this in turn loosens muscles and can lead to more reflux, or worsening of your condition.

    Every month my acid flares up when I'm about to start. Also my IBS gets worse. At least it lets me know when it's coming. If it gets really bad talk to your doctor/GYN and see if they have any suggestions.
