Red face Sexual abuse and IBS??

Hello,

I have what may seem like a very strange question. I have had IBS for the past 10 years or so just before I got pregnant with my second child. I was refered to a specialist and the first question he asked me was have I ever been sexually abused? This floored me because I in fact had been abused as a child. Has anyone else ever heard of this being a cause of IBS? I know that stress is a main factor and I do have that but sexual abuse? I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this topic. Thanks!!
