  • That has happened to me since my 20 an d still does! It is almost as if your system "cleans itself out". No worries.

  • It's because you get contractions which cause your period flow, the chemical that causes the contractions also can cause diarrhea.

  • Yeah, I'm about the same. It sucks so bad! Like the period cramps aren't bad enough, diarrhea cramps with it?! Nature sucks!
