Hello my name is Tia. last year I was diagnosed with endometriosis (well at least that's what they think I have, they can't be sure until I go for my surgery) and every once In a while (probably once or twice a week) I get random shooting pains inside my vaginal, sometimes when I sit down it feels like I have sat on a knife. The pains are worse when I am on my period. Sometimes they last a second one two but sometime they can last for minutes! My doctors say that It is normal to have them while on a period (as It could be due to the Endometriosis) but apparently not normal while I am not on my period. Please help by giving me some advice. I am really worried and the pains stop me In my tracks.
