back pain and this cramping on my lower right pelvic area

User Profile
Okay so I thought I could be pregnant, but now all I feel is horrible lower back pain and this cramping on my lower right pelvic area and it's often swollen. Really light nausea and mild pain on the back of my neck. I've also been having a heavy to light period. What could be going on?
I don't have insurance to go to a doctor.
I took a pregnancy test that came out negative please help me

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you are having heavy to light period, then the pain and cramping could be due to periods. Take a pain killer containing mefenamic acid and use a hot water bottle or a heating pad on abdomen and lower back.

The serious conditions which need to be ruled out are ectopic pregnancy (the pregnancy test can come negative) and burst ovarian cysts. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult a gynecologist or go to ER regarding this, if the above mentioned treatment does not help. Hope this helps. Take care!
