I've noticed that my stomach is kinda hard and seems bloated. It kinda hurts to lay on my stomach or bend forward. What could that mean?

Pro mean with: And bio means life. Probiotics help the GI system digest food. Anti means against. So, if one takes excessive antibiotics they can kill off the good bacteria in our GI systems and we can have digestive problems. This can happen w/out antibiotics at times too. So, the probiotics replace the good bacteria that are missing or low. Peace and good health. See doc to rule out medical conditions. ...Read more

When havng sex wth my partner my stomach hurts. He is big & he is my first partner. We have done sex a few times before my pain started, im occulation?

Pain with sex: I am not sure if you mean your partner is big as overweight, or has a large penis. If overweight, than you can try different positions such as being on top, which would obviously reduce having his weight on you. If he has a large penis and that is hurting, you could try lubricating gels and having a discussion with him and letting him know it hurts, so as to try different positions & techniques. ...Read more
