I'm sorry you have had such a hard time, especially at such a young age. I guess you have seen that doctor's are humans too with frustrations and sometimes less than desirable behavior.
I wonder if you might have endometriosis, but this can be difficult to diagnose. There are many conditions that can cause abdominal pain but ovarian cancer is not typically one of them. It is called the silent killer because it does not have usually have symptoms such as pain, bleeding, etc. Also you are not in an age range that would sound alarms for this problem.
It might be good to see another doctor and talk with him/her first to see if he/she is someone you feel you would be comfortable talking to. You can schedule a "meet and greet" appointment for this purpose - finding a doctor you click with. Bring a list of your history and symptoms to make it easier to get your story.
