Constant Bloating....Concerned


I have other periomenopausal symptoms. However during the last 7 months I have experieced a continuous state of bloating. I had an ultra-sound 7 mos. ago which "looked fine" according to my gyn. Also, physical exam of my ovaries he concluded was negative. If the bloating were relieved post mentrual cycle I would be less concerned. My abdomen is noticeable larger in size. Even my kids have noticed. I have gastro symptoms, a feeling of fullness, can only eat small amounts (previously I could eat a fair amount) I am not overweight btw with the exception of my abdomen.

As mentioned I do have other peri symptoms but the unrelenting bloating, cramping and gastro symptoms are of concern.

Re: Constant Bloating....Concerned


It's unlikely that the bloating you are concerned about is related to your ovaries or other gynecological problems, since you had a negative ultrasound and exam.

Bloating can be a symptom of many different disorders, the most likely being irritable bowel syndrome. You might want to consider making an appointment with a gastroenterologist.

Good luck and hugs,
