Mostly women have IBS. Not sure why, but I am a guy with this condition. Didn’t get this until later on in life. Usual stuff like C, but take linzess and other things when blocked, then causes D. I did have an issue with very bad bloating. Looked like a baby bump. Gastro gave me a SIBO test, was positive, took antibiotics for a month. Was not as bloated after that but took a toll on me. Problem with bloating is, it causes pelvic floor to stretch and moves your parts down under. They make devices for women with this condition to “move things” back up. Nothing for men though. It causes problems with sitting for while, (getting things smashed) No known remedies I have found from researching, other than surgical removal of those parts. Not sure what else to do. Tried kegel exercises, about it.
