I think Heather’s advice is excellent and sensitive – I also want to say that it’s very compassionate of you to care for your friend in this way! If you don’t want to bring up what you heard, you could try being even more subtle about it since you both recently started dating new people and ask questions about how that relationship is going and wind the conversation toward sex if you feel comfortable doing so. But I think there’s also something to be said for just admitting what you heard and checking in as a concerned friend without bringing up any particular diagnoses – just offering yourself as a resource to talk about it or to provide support in going to a gynecologist. Hope this helps and that your friend is in less pain soon!
