Re ask question: Your question is not clear. Ok your last Depo-Provera shot was nov 2011, and you speak about "a pill". Be more specific. What "pill" did you take and for how long? Are you still taking it? A good answer depends upon a good question.

Notify your OB: Braxton hicks contractions are common and that may be all you are feeling, however premature labor can start out feeling exactly the same way. Call your OB provider to discuss your "tummy pains" to see how he/she wants to evaluate your condition. Better safe than sorry.

Yes: Endometriosis involving the recto-vaginal area certainly can cause those symptoms. A careful examination by your gyn should be able to determine if this problem is present. Fortunately minimally invasive surgery can cure the problem in most cases. Make sure your gyn is an expert in laparoscopic procedures of this type so you can avoid a large abdominal incision.
