Stabbing pain in vagina and anus

I completely relate to the pain you are all experiencing. I have sharp stabbing pain that feels like it shoots up through my vaginal area into my abdomen and sometimes my anus as well. The pain is so unbearable at times that I cannot move or breathe. I am currently being treated for endomitriosis, however nothing they have done has been effective and now they are suggesting an IUD and possibly laproscopic surgery. I have also had surgery on my bladder to rule out IC which turned out to be negative. Have any of you had any treatments that have been successful? I am desperate at this point since I have been dealing with this type of daily pain for over 5 years. Please help!

Did they check for cysts? Maybe your hormone levels are a bit off, and you tend to develop cysts. I've heard that can be very painful. Although, I guess the endomitriosis can cause that pain too. I'm sorry you have to go through this. Hopefully, your doctors will find the right treatment for you soon, so you can feel better!

I would be interested in hearing more about this. I am experiencing something just like your pains. But I don't have endometriosis, and I have had my Mirena IUD for about 6 months now. I have only started experiencing these horrible, shooting pains, since my IUD was placed. And my OBGYN has noted development of ovarian cysts, and said that can cause some pain. But the extremity of my pain caused her to believe it might be gastro-intestinal. Whether it's cysts or not, I'm not sure yet. I would like to hope my IUD is not causing those problems, because other than a little initial discomfort and some weight gain, it's been a god-send.

you may want to check out something called pudendal nerve entrapment. It really does sound like you're experiencing many of the symptoms of it.

I have had 8 ovarian cysts rupture on my left side and 2 on my right. There really is no way of treating them so I have heard. My hormones are being regulated by birth control and I dont get my period anymore, since October 07, and have recently recovered from laparoscopic surgery done in late January this year. Pain is still there and my OB suggested Mirena, but I opted out since I have heard nothing but horror stories.... This is like a terrible nightmare sometimes!!  I'm going to look into the pudendal nerve entrapment, that is actually the second time someone mentioned that to me. Thanks for all your advice and sympathy.

I was so desperate and in so much pain I did a google search and came across this forum.Thank you ladies for sharing. I helps to know I am not alone. I hate going to the doctor and trying to explain something odd like this.

Most of you desribed the pain during a bowel movement. For me the pain happens so much during my bowel movement I never think about it any more. I just breathe though it. But today the pain came out of nowhere. I went to sit down and nearly had to jump back up! My right leg is achy and it feels like the mucles around my heel and ankle are pulled taut. I just took 800 mgs of ibuprophen cause I can't take the pain. Has anyone experienced the pain during normal activity? .

I get what sounds to be the same pains in my lower abdomon as well as inside the vagina along with other pains and problems. At first my doctor thourght it was an STI but after testing they found nothing. If only i had a good idea what it is. I may be able to get it seen to.

Ok I read this and would like to add something. I'm 33 had a full hysterectomy in 08 and have 1 child. I had 7 miscarriages and numerous laperoscopies for endometriosis. I was diagnosed with high risk HPV and had biopsies done. Going back today for issues but I get the same pain. So Sharp I can't move lasts 30 secs or so but no one knows why. I don't have any girl parts left and have never had an std...any ideas?
