I’ve always had this pain in my lower stomach area that usually occurs when I sneeze or cough. It doesn’t happen all the time, but I seem to have flare ups where it’ll happen several times a day for a couple days then stop. I’m usually sitting or lying down when it happens. It used to be a pulling/stretching/tearing pain that was behind my bellybutton. Now the same sensation has moved to my lower abdomen. The pain can be so intense that I double over, yell, or cry at times. It’ll last for a minute or two before I can stretch it out. Some more info about me, I’ve thrown out the idea of endometriosis with the APRN I see, and she didn’t consider it much. But it concerns me because my mom and her mom had it pretty severely. I’m on a continual dose of birth control pills, so I don’t have a period. I’m here to get advice on possible causes and on whether I should see a gynecologist or another doctor.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i think this pain in lower abdomen is either due to GI causes or bladder causes. It needs supportive care with pain killets and antispasmodics and meanwhile workup to find out possible etiology behind it. Let your doctor have a look and decide what is best for you.

Take care
