I'm experiencing a new pain during sex and in my period cramps-- it seems to be right where my right ovary would be. The pain is sharp and alarming, but goes away when I take ibuprofen (or stop sex). What could this be?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pain in the ovaries during intercourse and periods could be indicative of pelvic infection,endometritis or any ovarian pathology.A clinical examination and investigations as USG scan would help in ruling out the cause as it is difficult to comment without pelvic examination.
Kindly viist a Gynaecologist for evaluation for precise diagnosis so that the treatment can be started accordingly.
Take care!
