Birth control pills and constipation.... adult content

Does anyone else have this problem??? I tried eating more fiber but then I just got gassy. UGH! I am so uncomfortable!! I have been on these pills a little over 4 months and deal with this every month and then when it is time for my period I have to GO 10000 times.

  • If you are experiencing diarrhea with that time of the month, try 1 ibuprofen pill when you feel you are close to that time. I do that and it helps a LOT. I used to be on birth control, haven't now for 4 years or more, so don't remember constipation. Could it be something else causing that? Like needing to drink more water? Do you drink a lot of pop, coffee or other caffeine? I know that I get constipated with Iron so I have to watch how much I take of that in a multivitamin. Maybe just apple juice would help loosen things up? Hope you get some relief soon from what's going on.

  • I do not use BC however why not discuss this with your Gyne? They may put you on a different pill....
