I have familial mediterranean fever and I am on colchicine i noticed that every time my period ends i get the fmf is that normal?  What's threlation ?

I read it's common: Fmf attacks are triggered by the complex hormonal system of our bodies, a chaotic system that defies full analysis. From my reading, maybe 15% of women get an attack with each period. Whether you want to up your rx at this time is between you and your physician.

Every time I get my period, I have a bowel movement as well. Why is that?

The ovaries react to changes in hormone levels, so hitting them with a whopping dose at one time sounds like a damaging proposition. The doctor can help... meaning it's time to make a follow-up appointment. ...Read more
