Slightly TMI. - The Menstrual Hut

About Slightly TMI.

Previous Entry Slightly TMI. Jul. 15th, 2004 @ 11:27 am Next Entry
Okay, maybe it's VERY TMI, but hey, we're in the menstrual hut. I was just wondering if anyone else has a bad case of diarrhea the first day that they have cramps? My cramps are absolutely intolerable and it feels like I have to go to the bathroom (I think this may be due to all of the pressure in there) even when I can't actually go anymore. Occasionally, I'll have diarrhea, but I'll still feel like I need to go over and over again.

Anyone with me here?

It's ridiculous! We should come up with some sort of home remedy. I mean, it's unfair to have HORRIBLE cramps and then to also be confined to the bathroom the whole time. I'd rather just be laying down crying, not sitting on a toilet in horrible pain.

Try having a ravenous appetite and constipation the few days before hand.

Not fun.

I have a ravenous appetite all the time, but I haven't really looked into the constipation thing (although now that I think about it, I think I have that as well).

I just want to kill myself those 5 hours that it's REALLY bad.

Why thank you!

I'm a fan of this blog for some reason, so I needed an icon.

Yes! That happens to me often. I thought I was the only one who had BMs during her period!

The reason diarrhea comes during the first couple days before/during your period, is because the same hormone that makes the lining of your uterus shed, does the same thing to your bowels. YOu might say, this hormone (sorry, i forget which one) "loosens things up".

yup! that's true, progeterone is also involved with smooth muscle control, so when your body drops off of its hormones (which is when your period comes) you may have either constipation of diarrea depending on your diet. The best remedy I've found (I have a very sensitive stomach all the time) is to make sure you eat a fairly balanced diet, and listen to your body. If you're constipated- more fiber, if its diarrhea- more protein (cheese works well).
hope that helps!

yay - sort of.

Wow, I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I was going to tell my doctor and I was afraid she was going to tell me I was a freak. I get so sick, vomiting and diarrhea, pure pain. I just lay on my bathroom floor for a couple hours, and then I'm suddenly fine. The worst is when I don't realize this is going to happen and I have a big breakfast.
