I am a 33 yr old female who has 3 children. My last child

Customer Question

Hello I am a 33 yr old female who has 3 children. My last child was born march 2015. I am still breastfeeding my last child. All my births were vaginal with no complications and I have had no other health issues prior with my reproductive system. As of about 4 months ago I seem to have digestive issues about 1-2 weeks before my period is to start that is characterized by nausea, heart burn, menstrual cramps and diarrhea. I have been to the doctors and have had numerous blood tests as well as an X-ray for check my bowels I have also had a stool and urine culture. All returning normal. Do you have any suggestions about what this could be? I was given a diagnosis of IBS which it seemed they just didn't know why. Do you think it could be related to my ovaries and uterus or hormones?
