Menstrual cramps makes fissure hurt worse?

Postby bumbumsong » 31 Jul 2015, 23:15

It's that time of the month and I'm having BAD cramps. I have to take 600mg ibuprofen 3x a day just to get through the pain for about 2-3 days then usually it's better. I just notice that my fissure/anus hurt much worse.

Anyone else have this too?

I am not a woman, but can refer to what to you say. This was mentioned many times by women suffers.

Usually fissure and stool may get worse because of menstrual cycle

I think in general, since menstruating increases prostaglandins (the hormones that ibuprofen lowers), we experience more pain and muscles are more likely to spasm. I have pelvic pain and when I have more period cramps I also have more butt pain and tightness. Sucks, I know....

I think you might be right. I've recently started having the depo injection to stop my periods since they are heavy and very painful. Since the injections my cycle has been completely out of whack. Bleeding more than usual at random intervals. This seems to conincide with my fissure being worse over the last few months too. I can't guarantee there's a link but I think it's very plausible.

My dr said the hormones that are released before and during your period affect the smooth muscles.... Of which your sphincter etc is one.
I always get increased pain before my period. Feels like someone's used a cheese grater on my poor bum!
