Brief Answer:
Needs evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Pain in the abdomen you have must be evaluated in detail.

A detailed clinical examination will give a clue into what kind of imaging study is needed. Usually, an ultrasound scan is advised which can provide information about what is causing the pain.

It is very essential for women to get the abdomen pain evaluated at the earliest. Any cause related to uterus or ovary must be addressed as early as possible.

In case of infection to the ovaries, it can spread to local organs and cause pelvic inflammatory disease which is serious needing hospitalization.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
