What do you mean by constipation? Can you describe it? Is it hard stool ? Are you not able to pass gas or not able to pass stool easily?
Do you take any medication for anything else?
If you are not able to pass stool for one day it cannot be labelled as constipation. It should be for three days continously either stool or gas.
I was in a hurry during my previous answer. Sorry you were upset with my grammar. I shall try this time.
There is a big surge in the hormone called Prostaglandin just before menstrual period. This further delays the already delayed emptying time of the bowel in IBS patient. While the symptoms are common in most women due to PG surge we give a generic advise to include beans and peas in the diet nearing the period.
Menstrual period is a stress and IBS symptom aggravate to any kind of stress.
You seem to be upset for simple things this is a symptom of stress for itself and aggravate IBS.
You should be aware that avoiding salt and refined sugar foods can help further. Besides you can start exercising (brisk walk) just before your menstrual period which helps to improve blood and oxygen circulation throughout the body, hurry the bowels.
Please answer to my questions and I cannot assume your symptoms whether you have pain or not. Some people have just incomplete stools / hard stool and do not have pain. I asked you if you have pain and you did not reply to it. I cannot assume in this kind a platform.
