I have been suffering for 5 years now and getting worse every month. I had not noticed a link between my periods and worsening IBS until I ended up in hospital a few weeks ago due to pain/loss of consciousness etc and didn't take my pill. I decided to not take it for he next month since it wouldn't do me any harm not to be on it. However, I have felt as good this last month as I have in a couple of years and the only change in my life is not taking the pill! Then, last night I decided to start a new packet at the start of my cycle. By 8am this morning I was unconscious on the toilet due to pain. Even now am still in pain and needing to take more Oramorph. My GP says its just coincidence but I think it's too big a coincidence to be ignored. Anyone else noticed anything similar?
