During my period I would have increased symptoms, but I wouldn't call them "flares" because a flare to me is full blown out of remission d and all that lovely crap (no pun intended
). Its definitely a common problem with UCers. My primary dr ended up putting me on birth control to control my hormones and that was in 10th grade and I'm a freshman in college now and haven't had much of a problem since. I do tend to get horrible gas cramps though...
I hope things start to turn around for you! :)
