Ick, hormonal IBS! When I went off the pill last year (I'm back on them), my cramping and D worsened, so I have an idea how you're feeling. The D would start two days before my period and continue for the next couple of days. I'd also have severe cramping and lower back pain.

I've been in a similar D and C cycle as well...Could you take 1-2 Immodium when you're having D without pain and, since codeine can cause constipation, just a Co-codamol when your main symptom is pain? Increasing your Acacia dose sounds like a good idea. How much are you thinking of adding? 1/4 tsp?

Linz, I don't see you as a lazy cheater! I don't know how you or other fibromites manage eating and living w/ fibro and IBS. When I was first starting to stablize, just figuring out what to eat and do with IBS seemed like a full-time job! I hope you get stable soon. Are you thinking of switching back to your original contraception? Or do you have to stay on the Implanon?

Take care!
