Question: Hi I am a 43 year old female For the past year or so I have been experiencing random bouts of sharp pinching like pain in my lower abdomen more towards center not by ovary. The pain sporatically happens and lasts a second or two. It can be gone for a month or two and then come back lasting a few days. In July I had a workup done by my gyno had blood work swabs and ultrasound all came back clear. My question is should I be concerned about the pain what could be the cause.

There are times where I feel crampy like I need to have a bowel movement I am currently awaiting a colonoscopy gastro feels like I may have ibs I also had a few rounds of bacterial vaginosis last year could either of these cause such pain in a localized area

Brief Answer:
Please post Colonoscopy report once done.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your additional feedback.
IBS can surely cause the symptoms as you have mentioned.
But to say this to be IBS, it is better to get the GI related investigations to be within normal limits.
Bacterial vaginosis can cause PID that is pelvic inflammatory disease which in turn cause continuous pain in the lower abdominal area. Hence Can not cause momentary pain as you have mentioned.
I hope this answer helps you further.
