IBS: How to love your gut when it seems to hate you, featuring Steph McGovern

Here, broadcaster Steph McGovern joins Vogue to discuss her experience of IBS, explaining how it’s affected her daily life – both physically and mentally – how she manages the symptoms, and how we can tackle the taboo by talking about it. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition of the digestive system and affects about 15% of people in the UK (twice the number of women as men). With symptoms ranging from stomach pain, cramps, bloating, diarrhoea, faecal incontinence, constipation, flatulence, fatigue and nausea, IBS is not a barrel of laughs – but luckily Vogue and Steph both are, so tune in for one of Taboo Talk’s most frank and funny chats.
