I suggest that you consult a doctor for an examination, as well as an ultrasound of your abdomen and pelvis. There are numerous possible causes for your pain, like for instance diverticular disease of the colon, a cyst or growth on the ovaries or a growth in the uterus. All these possibilities will have to be investigated.
