Pin prick pains in lower abdomen

Hi, I was diagnosed with mild endometriosis a few years ago, I don't usually get any pain at all apart from my week break from my pill when i have my period every 3 months.

Today I woke up with lots of little pin prick sharp pains in my lower abdomen and it has carried on for a few hours every now and again, I am currently on the pill and not due to come off for a good few weeks so I'm really not sure what it could be?

Has anyone else experienced this sort of pain before?

Thanks :)

Hello! I get that pain also in bursts and for the duration of the day.

Don't take my word for it, but unfortunately it could be endo pains coming through, I have been on the pill for 10 years and only in the last 3 years has pain really become an issue, so the pill doesnt always keep all the pain at bay.

If it persists, maybe see doctor again just incase :)

Hope i helped! Xx


Thanks for your reply, it's really strange isn't it! Ive been on the pill 5 years now, I take it for 3 months then have a break but I think I'm just going to go back to taking it every moth with a break just incase it messes me up! Stuff only ever seems to work for a short while it's annoying isn't it X
