    Bowel problems and Endometriosis?

    I know that endometriosis is ometimes mistaken for IBS- which is what my docs say i have, but something keeps telling me its not it. Can bowel problems and pains be a main symptom of endometriosis???

    Re: Bowel problems and Endometriosis?

    Hi there Kira! I read your other post a few lines down. I was diagnosed with endo this year and have a lot of it in an area called the cul-de-sac. It is supposedly the most common area to get endo and my doctor says that it can make for horrendous bowel movements. I glad that you are checking your health issues out with medical professionals, but as the other post said the only way to diagnose endo is through a laperoscopy. I think you said that your bowel pain never lets up - my endo usually only causes that kind of pain during my period. I have had cysts on and off too but apparently they are pretty common. Wish you well!
