Sex With Ibs?

9 posts in this topic

Okay so I don't have IBS (yet), although last week I got IBS-like symptoms which are slowly being relieved. I was planning to see a girl but I cancelled as I was panicking and I was worried. Ironically my symptoms kind of started after I got a little stressed because of lots cancellations and confusion with wgs for the past couple of weeks.

 

Anyways as I understand it, IBS is very common and affects 1 in 5 people,and people live with it fine. I wonder though how that affects the punting game and sex in general? For the punters, how do you deal with it, like how do you avoid potentially embarrassing situations?

 

For the WGs if you have it, how has it in general affected you?

 

Also, if it turns out I do have IBS, I am going to get super pissed, probably vandalize my house or something :P

Changing your diet and learning to relax would be a good start - I used to get terrible IBS and had to call in sick quite often but cutting out certain foods and learning to deal with stress / anxiety better helped.

Spasmo-Canulase and some disgusting tasting herbal drops from a local pharmacy are what I turn to if I get an attack.

Peppermint oil (mild dose in peppermint tea but stronger in oil capsules from health shop) are proven.

Drugs include: Buscopan (hyoscine. sold as Buscopan IBS relief over the counter). Colefac (mebeverine. I think only available on prescription).

Relaxation techniques help. Dietary exclusions (find triggers and avoid them). Also taking soluble fibre can help - there's a sachet called fybogel (they do a combined version with mebeverine) which can be useful.

However, IBS is a 'diagnosis of exclusion' and depending on your age/symptoms etc...I often do screening investigations to rule other things OUT before I rule IBS IN.

So these help with your IBS symptoms and you go ahead with a punt as normal?

 

Luckily things seem to be getting better for me, probably a false alarm, I probably just ate something upsetting. But it is still helpful to know if there are extra preparations that people with IBS do.

I've suffered with IBS for the last 15 years. Sometimes it's an arse-ache (pun intended) then I go for months and almost forget that I have it. If I'm having a bad spell then peppermint capsules help me a lot. To the poster who suggested soluble fibre, I would exercise caution with this as it increased the problem and pain for me. If you have a decent diet and don't normally have to worry about constipation, then just look for the capsules and pain relief.

 

Obviously keep an eye on what foods seem to trigger episodes. Everyone is different, I know that milk and yoghurt, chicken and turkey, spinach and cauliflower are going to cause problems, but then I can eat jalapeños by the fistful and curries up to vindaloo strength without problems. Oh, if you drink a lot of diet fizzy drinks, cut those out as the artificial sweeteners can have a laxative effect.

 

It has never caused me to alter my punting plans, so long as I've been sensible with my eating. I usually find a punt is a good stress reliever and excellent treatment. Well that's my excuse anyway!

Try supplementing with a apple fibre, it helped my friend a lot with IBS.  Otherwise I don't know much about it.

I have suffered with this most of my life, so many people have it. Like WouldDoAnything I can go weeks with no problems then something can trigger it and it sets it off.

 

My dilemma is that I absolutely LOVE thai food but too much spicy food doesn't help, either does red meat or alcohol. Everyone's different and different foods or drinks can trigger it but the main causes are usually;

 

 

Fats and oils

Red meat

Dairy products and eggs

Coffee, tea and cola beverages

Frozen or very cold food or drinks

Citrus fruits, unpeeled fruits and raw vegetables

 

For me, mint tea and the peppermint oil capsules work well and keeping stress low helps too.

 

It has very rarely stopped me having sex or affected my work as an escort because I know how to manage it these days.
