BRAT diet: Diarrhea is best managed by drinking plenty of fluids and restricting fiber. The brat diet consists of bananas ( greener the better) , rice (white), applesauce, toast (white). Saltine crackers and bullion may also help. Also, avoid dairy as lactose intolerance is common. Good luck.

Is diarrhea a sign of ovulation?

Not usually: Most women don't have diarrhea at ovulation. Common signs of ovulation are cramping, back pain, vaginal discharge/mucus, spotting, breast tenderness/soreness, changing hormones, and increased body temperature. Some women's colons are more sensitive to fluctuating hormones, and it is possible. Use brat diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) and imodium (loperamide). See ob/gyn exclude more serious thing.

Can diarrhea be a sign of constipation?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in

Specializes in ADHD and Autism
Unlikely: Yes, but usually in the elderly. It would be very unusual for someone your age to experience this. Diarrhea can be due to constipation if you become impacted (stool stuck in the colon). Watery stool can get around the impacted area but again, this is a condition associated with the elderly. Try eating foods high in fiber and drinking lots of fluids.
