Do you also feel constipated a week before your period?
Hello, I am 22 years old female. Why do I always feel constipated a week before my period? I also feel bloating during this period. I still feel constipated as I have a date for my period next week. Is it a thing to be worried about? Do you also feel constipated a week before your period?
@mokita Hello, yes it is common to feel constipated during and before your period starts. It is due to hormonal change. During this time progesterone builds up in your body which can slow down your digestive system. You can try to make it better by eating more fibers like apples, broccoli, oats, You can treat by drinking more water, and exercising. If you aren’t sure of what is and isn’t normal regarding your period-related constipation, talk to a doctor or other healthcare provider. Thanks!
