Embarrassing but what the hey?

Why do I poop so much while I'm on my period? I know I'm not the only one cuz my girlfriends say it happens to them too. It's like, 4 or 5 times a day and sometimes diarrhea... Help?

  • The cramps that come along with your period can cause your intestines to malfunction a bit. If you're in pain, or under stress, your intestines won't absorb enough water from the food you're digesting, hence the poopies. I've had the same problem since I started having my period. It's perfectly normal, just kind of icky!
