Lower abdominal pain, back pain, painful intercourse can be symptoms of PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) or sexually transmitted infection that has spread from the cervix and womb to the ovaries and their tubes.
Pelvic pain during ovulation, a sharp pain deep in the pelvis during intercourse, or pain during bowel movements or urination, associated with painful, excessive menstrual bleeding, can indicate presence of another condition known as endometriosis.

Best wishes!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Peptic ulcer disease, ureteric colic and pancreatitis are differentials in this case.
I would suggest you CT scan abdomen.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
