What causes severe pain in the lower abdomen after tubal ligation?

I had ablation and tubal ligation about 5 years ago. Since then I have had sever pain in my ovaries once or twice a month sometimes more. I have had several test with no results. The pain has put me in the emergency room on several occasions over the past 2 years. Any ideas of what could be causing this. I am 50 years old.
