This pain could be ovarian/cyst related, but if you had a recent pelvic ultrasound that found nothing abnormal, then this is good news.  Your ovaries will still be ovulating monthly and some women feel that this is more prominent or bothersome after a hysterectomy.  Some lower pelvic pain may also could be related to your bowels or bladder or deep pelvic muscles.  It is concerning that your mother died of uterine/ovarian cancer, but since you had your uterus removed, then this won't affect you.  Since you do still have your ovaries, I would recommend simply following up with your physician to be sure that you continue to be well.

IBS pain can often feel like gynecologic pain or ovarian cyst/fibroid pain so is often confused with these problems.  However, if your recent ultrasound didn't find any ovarian cysts or problems with the ovaries or tubes, then your pain may be more related to the bowel than the ovaries.  You still should continue to see your gynecologist to follow this and be sure.  Furthermore, you should consider seeing a gastroenterologist as well as they are physicians that can help with bowels.
