Study points to yes: Saline irrigation can be beneficial when used for a short period of time. A study presented at the 2009 College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology suggested that chronic use of saline was counter productive. Although it removes pathogens when used from time to time, chronic use may remove the "good bacteria". Usually 1-3 weeks of use once a day is enough. If symptoms persist, see an ENT.

Pregnancy test?: First, I would check a home pregnancy test if you are sexually active, and if positive, the pain could be from an ectopic. If so see your MD ASAP. Other causes could be related to your menstrual period, ruptured ovarian cyst, GI bug. If this persists please get seen by your MD.

Let your Gyn know: If there is a concern for an ectopic your doctor will certainly get an ultrasound. If your are experiencing pain in your Poli if area and are concerned for an ectopic please go to your local ER immediately, and don't wait to see your doctor in her/his office.
