I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

I would still be worried about an ectopic pregnancy despite your negative pregnancy tests; for your symptoms. The pregnancy occurring at the places like fallopian tubes or other than uterus is called ectopic pregnancy and may not raise the pregnancy hormones, good enough to be detected by urine or home pregnancy test. For that either a blood pregnancy test or an ultrasound would be the choice of investigations. The other possibilities of the diagnosis are;

1) Fallopian tube infection.

2) Ovarian twist

3) Diverticulitis

4) Intestinal infection.

An x-ray and an ultrasound would be recommended as early as possible for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I have had a cyst on my right ovarie and it ruptured and bought extreme pain. This reminds me of same just not quite as extreme, yet. Can they do anything for a ovarian twist?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Do you know if urgent cares do ultrasound or would I need to go to ER?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 7 months ago.

Most of the urgent care do an ultrasound. But better would be ER where other facilities and availability of a specialist on call is there.

A recurrence of ovarian cyst rupture is not common still a possibility. For the ovarian twist; surgery may be needed, so ovary blood supply does not cease (strangulate).

It is privilege assisting you.
