I think the only solution is leading to your period to start taking maybe 400 to 500 mg magnesium citrate, since this is the most natural softener and go for a week.

But I still think this is related to extra tight sphincter due to entire pelvic floor tightening during PMS. I still think if you do LIS this will not continue happening. You may get harder stools, but not that extreme. At least this is what happened to me.

Thank you hopeful you don't know how much it means to me to have your advice your so knowledgeable an that's something this experience for me is missing I can't even talk to doctors about it because as you know from my experiences they don't understand why it's not healing they all say the same thing an some don't even know what a fissure is I had a doctor tell me the only way they fix a fissure is to stretch it uncontrollably with the Lord's procedure and another 1 that I told I mite need lis she said what's lis I told her it's where the cut the muscle slightly she said no no one does that that will make you crap your pants! I don't have any crs to talk to either unless I make an appointment an see them in 6 months one of which is the one that did the botox, I haven't got much to work with here so thank you hopeful I'm still considering my next move as it's a big next step if I lived in a big town this would be easier.

I know it's frustrating yo find the right doc to guide you properly. My GP first scared me with the ointments saying people fall down, and with LIS there is a chance of incontinence. No statistics though, so I know what percentage. He said do sit baths, drink water and increase fiber. Well, that did not work and I was left for months like that making my fissure chronic.
