Usually i get diarrhea the first couple of days of my period but this time it's carried on throughout. I also feel gassy and quite nauseas. Does anyone know if this is period related or perhaps a stomach bug? Do any of you get this? I went to the cinema and ate only a very few sweets and it gave me cramps and gas almost immediately. I got home and have bad diarrhea now and feel rough generally. Any help would be great thanks!

Not much help, but I get this all the time, it’s horrible! I hope it doesn’t last long!

Thanks for you're reply. It's good to know I'm not alone in feeling this way.

Hi. Sweets are not ideal to have. I find it messes my stomach and I have much worse pains when I’m due on. I use to suffer from similar issues like that and I made a conscious effort to change my diet.

I think you're really right about the sweets being a problem... Do you find that you have to be careful with what you eat when you are on?

Hi I started slowly removing stuff from my diet. I found sugar, diary, alcohol and red meat caused me so much

issues. I was throwing up and had symptoms of both diarrhoea and constipation when I was due on. It was horrible. I now I have transitioned to 90% plant based diet and I occasionally have seafood. I felt diet has helped massively. If you want something sweet you can always have healthy alternatives like raw cacao and then have agave syrup, stevia, maple syrup etc instead of having refined sugar. Then it’ll be easier to eliminate. I’ve seen recipes for chickpea cookies with no dairy, eggs, refined sugar etc.

Finding different recipes is a lot of fun and it’s really cool to experiment. Hope this has helped and good luck x
