IBS? How do you know you it if you also have Endo?

I have noticed that there a lot women with Endo that have IBS also. I have Endo and I have horrible painful bowel movements, diarrhea, bloating but that I thought that was a part of Endo. How do you if it is IBS?

  • IBS often accompanies Endo. I have both. I had the symptoms you described every month during my period. Endo was diagnosed when I was going through an infertility evaluation. I had laproscopic surgery and my doctor found endo and polycistic ovaries.
