Irritable bowel syndrome occurs in women about twice as often as it occurs in men.This condition can be aggravated by large meals and caffeine,among other things.


Answer by  dent (45)

Irritable bowel syndrome is more common in women. This might be due to the fact that it is often caused by emotional issues such as stress of depression. There are many cures for it, but often it will go away on its own once the stress is gone.
