Possibly endometriosis?

That sounds exactly like my periods used to be! I ended up having polycystic ovary syndrome (cysts growing on the ovaries) and endometrial hyperplasia (uterus lining was way too thick). I trialled the pill, which didn’t help, but was then put on the contraceptive rod. The rod stopped my periods – it stopped my eggs from coming out, which stopped cysts forming, and because the eggs weren’t released, my uterus lining didn’t form either. I’ve been pain free for 4 years now on the rod!

So they are another two things it could be. Good luck to you, I hope it all goes well. That level of pain is awful.

The pain associated with my endometriosis has me completely bed bound for the first three days. It is not like bad cramps, it is excruciating.  

Polysystic ovaries perhaps? Cysts on your ovaries will generally cause very sharp pains though. 

What k8nd of pain do you have?
