Perimenopause and IBs

Does anyone think IBS can be assoicated with perimenopause?? I never had this problem before feeling like i still have to go even after going and and constant nausea and anixeity. I am going through perimenopause and was wondering if anyone else had this connection. I am stating some new meds for all of it. Alyce

Re: Perimenopause and IBs

i posted same question some time ago as I am also perimenopausal in fact had one over the counter test positive for menopause although I still have periods although all over the place - some time cycle is three weeks sometimes its eight weeks and since all this started I have been experiencing extreme pressure sensations around navel and area waking me in the night and gas and bowel motions. I have had lots of tests and thinking its IBS.
I have never had this before and I was also wondering if the hormone havoc can trigger IBS. I am 46 yrs old by the way.

Re: Perimenopause and IBs

I have hormone imbalance and it's an ongoing struggle. So I've had no choice but to learn a lot about them and how they affect the body. Hormone fluctuations can absolutely instigate IBS in some women (including me! lol). And they do fluctuate quite a bit during perimenopause. So there's a fairly good chance that it is connected to your issue. Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done other than to control your diet and drink lots of water.
