Since when have you these pains?

Do you have urinary problems - burning, increased frequency etc?

What are your periods like - regular? When did you get your last period?

Do you have vaginal discharge - any bad odor?

Did you have unprotected sex in the last month?

hi, the back pain just started today but my pelvic pain has been about three days now and it will move from my sides to my center pelvic area. but, no urinary problems or anything. i actually have a implinon that is incorretly placed and we didnt notice till a week ago and i have had unprtected sex

This sounds like a pelvic infection - it causes pain in the lower abdomen which can radiate from place to place. Back pain also occurs due to inflammation of the ligaments that connects the uterus and ovaries to the back.

Another cause could be ovulation pain. Since your implanon is incorrectly placed, chances are that you are ovulating. Ovulation pain typically occurs on one side of the lower abdomen and radiates to the center. it is also more of a dull ache which increases on any activity or when walking. But it generally does not radiate to the back.

It is more likely that you have a pelvic infection than ovulation pain.

Please consult your doctor for an ultrasound as well as a vaginal swab to be sent to the lab for a test.

I hope this helps.
