During Menstruation

undefinedYou may not notice constipation during your period - what with period pains and feeling uncomfortable anyway - but many women experience changes, such as slow bowel activity and harder stools both during and just before their periods.



Constipation during menstruation can also be caused by diet as some women have a less healthy diet at this time, eating more chocolate and cake. So if you can, try to consume more dietary fibre - you may feel better for it.

If you find constipation is interfering with your quality of life during your period, you could try a gentle constipation remedy.
