I have a shower/tub on my upper level bathroom and fo rthe past couple weekes I have noticed a water stain on the kitchen ceiling directly below the shower drain. I suspected the problem to be the drain so I filled ran the shower and filled the tub with water and no leak but as soon as someone stands in the shower with the water running I can hear a small drip onto the drywall of the kitchen ceiling. I replaced the rubber gasket below the tub drain, the drain fitting, and used plumbers putty to seal it all up. I do not have access to the shower drain from behind or below and wondering where the leak may be coming from and why would the leak only happen when someone is in the tub/shower? I would like to have an idea of where the problem may be and if it can be fixed before cutting access holes into the drywall. I would appreciate any feedback, thanks.

If you fill the tub from the tub spout and let the water down and no leak then you take a shower and you hear dripping this could be several things but I would check the grouting first
