i've had bowel problems since childbirth
- I regularly have diarrhea since giving birth, i think it has something to do with my pelvic floor muscles not supporting my bowels? But a friend said that some women can get IBS after pregancy. it's a very embarrassing subject, and it's getting in the way of social events.
