It’s still unclear whether women experience more flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.A study published by the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) shows that men in Western cultures are much less likely than women to report signs of IBS to their physician.Therefore, data about gender-specific symptoms is lacking.Do you have any unusual tips for how to deal with it?What must guys think to have a girl farting next to them all night?! I've laughed while writing it because it is quite comical!It’s also unclear whether men avoid notifying their doctors of their condition.More research needs to be done on this disorder and how it affects men and women.

I'm not sure what kind of help or advice I'm looking for but I really need to share this problem with people who may understand.
I'm 32 and have suffered from IBS for about 14 years.

For me it's usually two or three long loud farts every night!
