Hello and welcome to HCM,
The irritable bowel disease and post-menopausal symptoms separate problems.
They are not related to each other.
there is drop in level of estrogen
in the body.
Fall in estrogen leads to symptoms of hot flushing
, mood swings, dryness in vagina, thinning of the vulval skin.
These symptoms can be alleviated by using hormonal
replacement therapy and topical estrogens for the local symptoms.
Aggravation of the irritable bowel disease has not to menopause.IBS
has a chronic course marked by waxing and waning of the gastrointestinal symptoms.
You need to consult your treating doctor for changing or varying the dose of drugs for IBS.
You need to consult your gynecologist for alleviating the symptoms of menopause.
Thanks and take care
