Hi ladies. On the advice of my gynae I have started my second pill packet last week without a break as they want me to tri-cycle. Since then I've had bad constipation symptoms. What used to happen was, about a week leading up to my period, I would get constipated and then during my period I would have diarrhoea. Apart from that, I used to go once a day. I can't open my bowels without laxatives at the moment and I eat plenty of fruit, veg and fibre. I also drink plenty of water.
Just wondering from your experiences whether taking the pill back to back has caused you constipation too? Sorry it's a bit tmi but it's very frustrating, especially in this warm weather xx
