I'd say there are either ovarian cysts or pelvic organ prolapse. Both may cause this type of pain, but I favor the prolapse....especially if you have had 4 children vaginally.
The prolapse is 'dropping' of the uterus and cervix. This causes stretching, tension and pressure on nerves that give you the pain.
You can do a simple test at home. Feel where your cervix is normally and then feel where it goes when you bear down. If the cervix drops when you bear down you have prolapse.

No, not necessarily. Uterine infections are fairly uncommon away from childbirth.
Unless you have had similar conditions or exposures to last June I wouldn't really consider it.
after the day surgery I had in June, I have bled for a few days and it came back 2 weeks later and bled ever since until 2 weeks ago and now I feel this sharp pain in my uterus/ovaries. I can barely walk unless I have to
Ok. So a D&C. Irregular bleeding isn't uncommon. Infection is. Being out 6 months means there is no relationship.
If this pain is new, it's probably an ovarian cyst. You need an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis.
Ok. Good luck and please take the time to leave feedback.
