I have been having this same problem for the pass 3 yrs. Never had a pproblem before for then but not it's almost once a month..The longest I hhave gone without a flare up is 8 months. I have been doing some research because I have been to 3 doctors with the same out come. I have tried to cut down on sugars and high carb foods. I also try gluten free foods but tend to fall off the wagon a bit. I also found that taking folic acid and zinc supplements along with probiotic helps. I still have flare up but it's not as often. I really tired of this problem and I'm wondering is this due to me have a hysterictomy 7 sevens ago. My husband has been great but I feel so un-normal. this is so difficult to deal with. since I have been using the folic acid and zinc I have had a 6 months free period but then here it goes again. I have been eating some sugar not a lot, and breads got off my supplements some what. I hate taking medication of any kind. Question: If I continue to take supplements and eat the low carb foods will I be cured. I'm so tired of this issue.....View Thread
