I am a 31 year old Female for the past 3 days I have had stomach cramps early mornings and evenings. My stools at these times are loose and slightly yellow with white bits in. I have had IBS in the past I was wondering if this could be a flare up. I also have PCOS so was not sure if that could also cause this problem. I was wondering if you had any idea what these symptoms could be?

Thanks for writing in

It sounds like you have developed acute exacerbation of IBS and/or collitis

Manage your stress levels and reassure yourself
Add a probiotic twice a day for four to six weeks

In case this does not respond add a GI antibiotic as per the stool report

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concerns
