IBS, TTC & Pregnancy

Does anyone suffer from IBS? if so how does TTC affect it and if you have a been pregnant before how did pregnancy affect it?

After suffering a pretty nasty episode of IBS this weekend, it has made me start worrying as I know I won't be able to take my medication once pregnant

Re: IBS, TTC & Pregnancy

I take 4 fiber pills a day for IBS and went through an IVF cycle and pregancy with no problems. I just kept on taking the fiber. I don't guess that would work for you rather than the med?

Also, some meds, even tho they may be a class c, you can take. I took a class c migraine drug during pg. My OB explained that sometimes the benefits outweigh the risks.

I have IBS-D and since being pregnant slows down digestion my IBS has been almost non-existent since I got pregnant.
