I'm on the contraceptive pill (have been now for 10 years), I've never really suffered with period pains and for the last 3-4 years my periods have changed from medium flow for 5 ish days to very light flow for 1-2 days (the doctor reassured me this was just the pill and was normal when it started a few years ago).
The past few months I've started feeling twinges around the time of my period and now it feels like a sharp stabbing in my lower pelvic region, it almost feels like something is pulling like when you tweezer eyebrow hairs. It is a suddena And sharp pain that is worse when I push with muscles down there, for example to use the toilet, urinate etc.
Also sometimes after sex I get the same pain and it reaches to my abdomen, a very sharp crampy pain.
Could this be endometriosis? Any ideas what could be causing this strange pain?
(Also might be worth mentioning a few months ago the doctor suspected and ovarian cyst so I had the ca125 blood test and an ultrasound - all came back normal)
Thank you in advance
