Am i pregnant?: It could be. You can do a urine test that you can obtain from the drug store yourself. If you are having pain, go and see a health care practitioner who can examine you and order testing to properly diagnose the pain.

The groin has a lot: The groin has a lot of structures. The illiopsoas can sometimes get tight and cause difficulty with walking. There are other muscles in the area also that may be inflammed due to close proximity of the bowel and the ureter. If it does not resolve quickly or gets worse, go and see a doctor so that you can be examined and labwork ordered.
