I recently had pains for 2 weeks which I assumed was just another IBS attack but then I started getting period like pain which is odd as I don't have periods with the pill I am. Anyway I went to the doctor and they had a feel around and a certain point was painful but this was around the intestines region. So I did a urine test which showed I had a pelvic infection which is why I was feeling pain lower down. She said bad bacteria from the gut could have got into the pelvis. Anyone else experienced this with their IBS?
