Talking about? Why is it worse with my period?
Very good studies confirm that menstruation does have a deleterious effect on IBS symptoms and show that almost half of IBS sufferers report a worsening of their symptoms in association with their periods.

Choose a more relaxed approach to your problem and treat your symptoms as and when they occur.
