actually no it wont. you cannot be intolrant to fibre, as it is cellulose, and is not digested by the body. it just goes through the system as bulk, absorbing water as waste.
if it was infection, she'd be in pain.
of course see a doc, but in the meantime, perfume and fibre
Yes it can.
Too much fibre can upset the bowel and in some cases actually trigger the symptoms of IBS.
A high fibre diet can trigger flatulence not something you want when your arse already stinks is it.
High fibre foods - fibre is essential to the health of the digestive system but it can create excessive gas. The small intestine can't break down certain compounds, which means extra work for the gas-producing intestinal bacteria, and accompanying flatus. High fibre diets should be introduced slowly to allow the bowel sufficient time to adjust.
There is no doubt that a diet high in fibre is ideal for the health of the gastrointestinal tract. However, there are many people who cannot tolerate high fibre diets. Often those people who need high fibre diets the most, cannot tolerate large amounts of fibre due to food intolerances, digestive insufficiencies, or have an overly sensitive, inflamed, and damaged bowel wall.
In fact, when advised to increase their fibre intake, many people experience an increase in unpleasant symptom. High fibre intolerance might manifest an increased bloating, wind, loose bowels, abdominal pain and cramps.
