No: Pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen of a female can be caused by many things including appendicitis, ovarian problems (cysts, torsion, infection), kidney stones, bowel inflammation, pulled muscle, etc. Your history will help a doctor properly diagnose your problem. I recommend seeking medical attention, especially if it persists/gets worse or you have fever or nausea/vomiting.
