I randomly feel like I’m getting stabbed in the ovaries sometimes, it’s not just during my period it’s kinda something that happens anytime. Is it a symptom of endometriosis or is it something else like pcos?

      I have that too and I believe mine is endometriosis that has latched onto the ovaries because they didn't see any abnormal cysts on the ultrasound I had. But I also haven't had a laparoscopy so my endo diagnosis is based solely on symptoms and family history. "PCOS" is a misnomer and they should really rename it- ovarian cysts that are small and nonpainful are normal, not everyone with PCOS has problematic ovarian cysts, and not everyone with problematic ovarian cysts has PCOS. If you can get an ultrasound from your doctor, that could help rule out cysts. Unfortunately, no scans show endometriosis (because it's made of the same soft tissue as the things it's attached to, it just hurts because it shouldnt be there specifically and it bleeds) so you'd have to get a laporoscopy to confirm it being that. But, it's a minimally invasive surgery and they can also remove some endometrial tissue if they find any during laporoscopy, which reduces symptoms a Lot for at least a while.

      Sounds like an ovarian cyst, I’ve had them before and it is Excruciating

      Hello! I get these pains as well with endometriosis. Do they happen around your ovulation time? Or maybe it is something you have eaten that you are reacting to? Either way, unfortunately it sounds pretty normal for the condition. Never be worried to message your doctor with these concerns also! 💕

      I have suspected endometriosis but I also don't know, I have these too and sometimes it can be helped through diaphragmatic breathing and trying to relax that whole area, it's hard to explain but my pelvic physical therapist helped teach me how and it can help half the time

      You could have a ovarian cyst burst. I've had those before and they're very painful.
