Is this normal. I need help quick
I have been experiencing colon problems for regularyly over the past year. I have gone off the contraceptive pill about a year ago and this has happened since. Only realized now, that the only time i become constipated is between ovulation and my menstrual cycle. Is this normal, and if it is, why does it happen?

Many women have this. It is because of the hormone changes during the cycle. You could use a mild laxative such as Normacol.
