Know why you get menstrual constipation

Menstrual constipation can occur due to hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle. Rising levels of the hormone progesterone can slow down bowel movements, leading to constipation. Additionally, increased water retention and changes in diet or activity levels during menstruation can contribute to this issue. Ensuring a balanced diet, staying hydrated, and managing stress can help alleviate menstrual constipation.
