Are women more susceptible to IBS than men?Almost twice as many women are affected by the syndrome as men, a statistic which some researchers have linked to hormones due increased occurrence during the time of menstruation. It has also been suggested people are more likely to suffer from IBS if they are under 45, have mental health problems or there is a family history of the condition. There are no specific tests to determine whether someone is suffering from IBS, although a blood or stool test can rule out any other medical conditions.
What can trigger IBS?IBS can be triggered by a number of factors, including; food or drinks such as alcohol, fizzy drinks, caffeine, spices, chocolate, and processed snacks or psychological factors, such as stress or anxiety.

Fybogel is a laxative that is used to treat irregular bowel movements. It can also be used to make bowel movements easier to pass for people who suffer from hemorrhoids or who have an external tear on their anus. It is particularly useful for dealing with constipation during pregnancy, since it produces no serious side effects for pregnant women and does not negatively affect the fetus.
However, there is a chance that there will be some minor side effects. Please understand that the side effects listed here will not apply to everyone, nor will everyone experience them with the same severity.
The most common side effects are bloating, gas and intestinal obstruction. Most of these can be caused by Fybogel’s mechanism. This medication contains a bulk-forming laxative called ispaghula husk. When it enters the digestive system, it expands any faeces that it comes into contact with. This forces the muscles of the bowels to contract and push out the faeces, resulting in a bowel movement.
If the laxative makes the faecal mass too large, it can cause an obstruction on the colon, creating stomach pains and similar symptoms of constipation. If the mass is unable to pass, it may be necessary to contact a doctor for medical assistance.
If any of your symptoms are bothering you, you can always take medication for them, though you do need to be careful about how they interact with Fybogel. It is always a good idea to ask a pharmacist or a doctor about combining medication.
Due to the nature of what Fybogel is used for, you should avoid taking it right before bed. You also need to consult a doctor before giving it to any child under the age of 12, and always be sure to follow the dosage instructions appropriate to the age of the person taking it. Failure to follow directions can result in more severe side effects.
There is a small chance that some people will have an allergic reaction to the Fybogel. This is characterised by itchiness, rashes, hives, difficulty breathing and flu-like symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, you should stop taking the drug immediately and contact a medical professional for help.
To avoid many of the side effects, particularly gut blockage, be sure to drink plenty of water with this medication. This will help allow it to go through your body more easily and ensure that fecal matter is broken down to allow for easier bowel movements. If you accidentally take too much of the drug at once, exceeding the dosage, then you should drink plenty of water. This should prevent any serious side effects from occurring.
Fybogel is relatively safe, and most side effects can be prevented with proper use.
