I feel that my reflux/stomach/heartburn problems have worsened these past two days and I am on my cycle. Is this common? I feel like crap.

Actually, there is strong evidence that GERD risks increase with the hormonal changes of menopause.


It just makes sense that hormonal changes during menstruation could affect you even before that.

Good luck with your symptoms...hope you feel better soon.
Take care,

I can absolutely tell when my cycle is coming because my acid reflux symptoms get MUCH worse. You aren't alone!

Found this thread and I am bumping it up for the young women on the forum. This is also a concern for me too, as I get worse symptoms right before my period. I was doing ok, then boom, no matter what I did the symptoms were worse. I have no idea what to do about it besides talk to my Gyno.
