Is the stabbing pain that wraps around my pelvis endometriosis?

Hello everyone. After consulting with 3 different gynecologists and having them all look at me like I'm crazy, I'm hoping I can find at least someone who knows what I mean. I've always had issues with my period, but within the last 3 or so years it has gotten way worse and I started getting pain during my period when I would defecate, that I can only explain as this extremely sharp pain that's like below my tailbone, and wraps around to my pelvis.

Within the last year though, I haven't suffered with pain with defecation during my period, but instead I'll get that stabbing pain during an orgasm, whether it's with my boyfriend or when I'm masturbating. It happens all the time now and not just during my period. No one seems to know what I'm talking about and I feel crazy. I've just kind of stopped trying to find a new gynecologist after the last one basically called me a liar because I was 21 at the time and still a virgin. But now that I'm in a relationship and having intercourse, I need to address this problem because it's happening more and more often.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me, and sorry for the TMI!

Never too much information here.  :>)))  We can take it and it helps to know what is going on.  This sounds painful and a pain to deal with. Sorry your doctor's haven't been very helpful thus far.  I'm so surprised they haven't diagnosed you with endo!  Pain during bowel movements when on your period is kind of a classic sign!  And endo can cause pain during orgasm or sex in general as well.  I'm sure they have done a physical exam but what about ultrasound or MRI to look for endometriosis?  I think you are at that point or have they done this and say you don't have it?  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/endometriosis/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20354661

Thank you for your response! I was officially diagnosed with endometriosis, and have an ultrasound scheduled.

Stabbing pain that wraps around pelvis endometriosis is usually associated with menstrual periods. Women with endometriosis usually have more pain than menstrual pain and last longer.

Yes, and if you read my post I have more than menstrual pain and it does last long, so I'm confused by your response. I've been officially diagnosed by a doctor now but thank you.

Ah, so you were diagnosed with endo!  I'm glad you have a diagnosis but sorry you are dealing with that!  When is your ultrasound?

I'm sorry for your diagnosis, but at least you have answers now.

When I read through your posts, I thought for sure it was endo. It sounds a lot like what I've experienced.

Keep us posted. :)
