I am new to all this and I was wondering if any of you find your symptoms worse when on your period. My Ulcerative Colitis gets worse on my period. I actually had been on a type of BC where I really hadn't had a period for a while. I just switched to Mirena so I am transitioning back. I am supposed to go back to having little or no periods but right ow it is very heavy and painful. Thank you

You were wondering about your period and the flare up before or during and yes, Lupus does flare during those times. Also if you have other infections like bladder infection or sore throat you will have a lot more Lupus activity.  Any thing that might make your immune system on alert will activate your Lupus.
