Our expert says:
Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I suggest that you make an appointment with a Gastroenterologist, in order for him/her to do the necessary tests to exclude IBS. IBS is common but unfortunately, it is a diagnosis that has to be made by excluding other pathological causes.
You should also see a Gynaecologist for a papsmear, as well as a swap of the vagina to make a diagnosis of why your menstruational pains are so severe.
