Consider other cause: When you state "peri-menopause", the gamut of symptoms is actually quite large. I would not list changes in bowel habits as high on this list (related to extreme gas and bloating). "extreme" gas and bloating needs to be evaluated by a physician who should perform and abdominal and pelvic exam. Visit www.Nams.Org for menopause info.
