What causes Menstrual Diarrhoea?
Although it’s not fully understood, it’s believed that the hormonal changes taking place during your period are the cause of menstrual-related diarrhoea.
In particular, the culprit could be a chemical called prostaglandin, which is released during menstruation. Prostaglandin causes the muscles in your bowels to contract and this may lead to diarrhoea and stomach pain when you get your period.
