probably because you're flaring and/or have IBS. (flaring doesn't have to have blood).
When you're having non-stop bms...are you having diarrhea?
It could be you're also not on enough 5ASA meds...consider oral meds as well...and ask your doc for some antispasmodics to help the cramping/spasming for either of the constipation/frequency days.
how is your diet in general?
you might consider to take fibre supplements. Believe it or not, it can also help bulk up stools to help even out your bms..etc. Plus, fibre supplements will help your probiotics work better.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
