Lately I have been getting sharp stabbing pains on both my ovaries this started right after my period, I also will get sharp stabbing pains in my groin and lower back. Sept 2010 I had laparoscopic surgery to remove a dermoid cyst and also a D & C. Since the surgery I had a child by cesarean in which my bladder was cut and had to undergo resurgent yet again to repair. I have felt great since till now. The pain on my ovary is sometimes stabbing or also can be stinging at times, just doesn't feel right. Any help?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the underlying cause for the sharp stabbing pelvic/lower abdominal pain that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Possibilities include ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions, endometriosis, adenomyosis, PID, endometrioma, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
