A common concern among female Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferers is, "How will this affect my pregnancy?" Truth of the matter is, in many ways it won't. IBS will not affect your ability to get pregnant nor will it bother the baby. Unfortunately, the one it will bother is you, the mommy to be. Unpredictably, IBS can wax or wane during pregnancy just as it can on a day-to-day basis. During pregnancy, many of the substances that should be avoided with IBS in general are verboten including caffeine and alcohols.
