Hard diagnosis: IBS is usually a clinical diagnosis that is made based on history. It is a diagnosis of exclusion and usually made after other more serious problems are eliminated through testing. Best way to treat IBS is to have a consistent amount of fiber in your diet, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water and decrease stressful situations in your life

No: D & C can also be done for abnormally thicker uterine lining to obtain sample for biopsy to rule out uterine CA or to help terminate excessive bleeding. It can also be done for retained placenta after childbirth
