Why GERD symptoms get worse before mesnsturation and how to decrease symptoms without medication?

Well, not sure: Why worse but premenstrually many things worsen, perhaps even eating habits. Ranitidine is a medicine that is safe and much better than long term effects of reflux. If you smoke it's much less harmful and smoking can make gerd worse. Try some baking soda, milk or even a little bit of half/half if you must stay away from medicine. Gdluc. ...Read more

I have gastritis and GERD. My symptoms become much worse around menstruation and ovulation. Is this typical?

I have gastritis and GERD. My symptoms become much worse around menstruation and ovulation. Is this typical?

Typical? No: ...but it certainly isn't unheard of. Many women have abdominal complaints which seem related to their menstrual cycle. I would recommend that you consider omeprazole or ranitidine for as many days as you need it each month, and then get off of it in between. If that helps your problem, no other management is probably necessary. Good luck. ...Read more
