Look for symptoms of IBS, PCOS, and PMS
I practiced reproductive endocrinology for 40 years and saw too many patients whose endometriosis had been ignored or undertreated. I found that the initial suspicion for the disease could be discovered by looking for symptoms of 3 comorbidities: irritable bowel syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, and premenstrual syndrome.
