Diarrhea with everything i eat & menstruating adult content

I saw this question on Yahoo but realized that I have the exact same symptoms. I found the question because I was googling about diarrhea after eating (for about 6days now) as long as I have been menstruating. I have in the past noticed it to be a trend... Anyway here's the yahoo question. Again it's the same thing I have. Does anyone know what to do about this? Pepto has not helped.

"Diarrhea with everything i eat!!?
so when ever i have my period i get diarrhea for a few days, but this month its been worse than usual. bad cramping and i wont know if its just gas or cramping or diarrhea until the last second when im running to the toilet! literally everything i eat goes right thru me..."

She more or less ends it by asking what she should do. I'm asking the same. Any ideas?

  • I'd drink lots of liquids to keep from getting dehydrated and cut down on solids if you know it's going to happen. I'd also talk with my doctor about it.

  • I drink a lot of fluid and cut out any fatty foods. I double my intake of probiotics. It helps.

  • Menstruation increases your progesterone level. Its a muscle relaxant. Unfortunately for some,it relaxes the muscles of the intestine along with those of the uterus,resulting in diarrhea.
    Just keep up your fluids.The probiotics are a good idea as well. Take them daily,everyday
