I'm 19 and I've only had one boyfriend, which lasted for only a few months when i was 16. I was given hyomax and I've been on it for almost 3 years. It seemed to help sometimes, but not all the time. Just recently, I quit taking hyomax because my doctor didn't want me to be on pills for the rest of my life, and it wasn't working that great anyway. I can tell that the gurgling and sensitiveness is back with a vengeance. I've always worried that this will affect my love life. IBS makes me anxious, nervous, and worried. I'm always on the cautious side and my social life has definitely suffered because of it. I missed my best friend's birthday party because of it. I wish there was a way to rid of it, because I want so badly to have a guy. There is this guy I have been talking to for months, but I'm afraid to make any moves because my IBS is embarrassing. I hate quiet places because my gut makes noises, so how can I be alone with him? Any suggestions or comments?View Thread
