Question: UC & Menses

Is it normal for your IBD symptoms to seem like they worsen around the time of mensturation?
Sometimes it feels hard to differentiate between what is pain from mensturation or if I'm getting symptoms of IBD flare/mini-flare.

Answer

I think I'm starting to see a pattern with my menstration. I noticed I do get mini flares in the last 3 months and it's been mostly around this time of month. So perhaps there is a connection.
