I've had a pain in my right side, just above the ovaries so sort of bowel area, for 3 years. I always thought it was my ovary til my lap came back clear and he said it was most likely bowels. I stopped taking the pill 2 weeks ago, had a period and since then the pain has been awful, like a hot knife going through it. Surely if it wasn't endo the two wouldn't be related right? And he didn't check my bowel during the lap which only leaves me with more questions!
