Abdominal pains 6 weeks after stillbirth

I am trying to understand why I have been having pains in my side which end up in my lower pelvic area. It feels like contractions. Did tests which came back negative. What does this mean? It has occurred twice, 3 weeks after birth and now 6 weeks.

Kind regards

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Pain in the flanks and pelvic region could be due to either pelvic infections, ovarian cysts, or renal stones.

Consulting a doctor for a examination and tests including a ultrasound or a CT scan might be helpful for proper diagnosis and treatment.
