WARNING: This is gross, but...

Sorry, ladies, this is gross but I was wondering:

Why is it that some women (myself and my little sister included) have diarrhea along with their period? The day before I start and the first day of my period, I have horrible diarrhea. What on earth does one have to do with the other?!

  • It's actually pretty common. I get it occasionally. It' caused by the change in hormones. You can google it to find out more info.

  • I used to get that, only after my period. My sister is the same way. I remember being in the shower and her yelling "I have diarrhea horribly, I get this when I'm on my period." I never understood that. Sorry I wasn't much help.

  • Mine was before my period. I figured it was clearing the way for my body to just have to deal with the cramps (I have Endometriosis)

  • I always did this as well, the first couple of days.
