Background female early 20s ibs d sufferer for 3 years.
I normally have loose stools with frequency in mornings.

2 months ago had to take an anti biotic. Two weeks later and so for last 5 weeks now ny ibs has suddenly changed into the constipation type. It's hard to get stools out I feel likr there's some sort of obstruction.

I eat healthily whole foods plenty of veg fruit and exercise daily.

Gps have dismissed ne saying it's normal ibs. Is this normal ??

Also is this because the antibiotic killed the last of my good bacteria? If so what would be the best probiotic to start taking.

It can be normal in IBS, but sudden changes in bowl habits should be followed up. The GP should have at least started going down the osmotic laxative route. I'd see another GP. I would dismiss any thoughts of it being related to the antibiotics killing off bacteria, there's no good evidence of pro-biotics having any positive effect in treating any conditions I'm afraid.
