Horrendous ovulation

Does anyone experience bad diarrrea while ovulating? It's new to me as normally I have just left side pain and nausea, but this time I got diarrhoea, really bad one , it's over 3 days, Imodium doesn't help. Any ideas what can I do ? Should I ask some antibiotics in case it's a bug? I am sure it's endo related as pelvic pain is unbearable and it's right in the middle of my cycle . The latest period was really bad too, with clots and crumps from hell. I am waiting for my first lap in Oxford. The list is very long , don't have even approximate date.So lost ...

Hi, yes i too get this. I have always had diarrhea with my period but my symptoms are worsening whilst i wait for excision surgery, including diarrhea when i ovulate. It is indicative of endo on/around the bowel. I don't treat it as such, like you said just another symptom to add to a long list! Other than stay hydrated and near a loo! X

Thanks for replying . I have all sorts of symptoms but never had bowel involved, it's first time and I am really upset . I work on a train so it's tricky to get to the loo sometimes. any other otc medicines to control it as it's totally new to me ( got Imodium, doesn't help( surviving on toast and boiled , even coffee makes me sick

Oh you poor thing. Have you tried Buscopan? It can help with the cramps? Peppermint tea can help settle an upset stomach. If it is endo related i find mine stops as quickly as it starts x

Thanks ,Buscopan seems the right to try.was surviving on tranexamic acid and ibuprofen, but think to move to different level of painkillers. Seeing GP on Monday . Any suggestions on what should I ask, tramadol, naproxen, mefenamic acid? Not too harsh on my stomach ?

You could try 4 hourly paracetamol, in addition I also take max dose tramadol and mefanemic acid daily. They should prescribe you something like omeparazole to protect your gut if they give you a stronger anti inflammatory. Have an honest discussion about how the pain is affecting you with your doc. Don't let them fob you off. Hope you get some relief x

I had this too, unfortunately I had to just wait for it to pass but after I would feel like crap. Take an electrolyte drink after it calms down and drink lots of water.

I also got diahrria during my period too.

I find that diahrria really irritates my abdo pain and I get endo belly, so wear a heating pad whenever you can.
