This probably won't help, because it sounds like that could be so many things, but this happened to me when I first became pregnant with my son. Got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, terrible shooting pains throughout my abdominal area and ovaries, and then tenderness for the next few days. It never repeated, and my doctor was never able to explain it, but it was the worst pain in my life: worse than childbirth even. Just thought I'd mention it.
