I don't have any issues with my bowels before my period.
The only issue with me about
periods and UC is that I have a hard time telling the difference between blood from the period and blood from UC. When I'm coming out of a flare, I have a hard time being able to tell that the bleeding hasn't from UC come back. I have to wait until I don't have my period anymore to know that yes, the bleeding from UC hasn't come back. It was just my period.
