Does anyone with IBS have extremely bad periods too? Do you think there’s a link between those two?

      @Madilm yeah they put me on BC too when they thought I might have endo. Then I had exploratory laparoscopic surgery to see if there was any endo. There wasn’t but I still have really bad pain with my periods

      Yes! You should 100% look into endometriosis with a doctor. This same thing happened to me and endo can make IBS worse as well as grow on your colon and intestines, being confused with digestive issues!!

        @AngieIrene that’s so scary, I’ve always had a thought that I do have endo… before I got put on BC, I had terribly painful and irregular periods, it hurt to use the bathroom, I always felt a fullness in my lower stomach.. and I started my period at age 9 which puts me at a higher risk. Then I developed ibs. I went to the gyno and all they did was put me on birth control and didn’t even think to look into endometriosis… idk bruh 🤦🏼‍♀️
