Ovary? Appendix? : Could be many things such as ovulation which occurs monthly and can feel that way. Could also be an ovarian cyst. If on you the right side- I might also worry about an appendix so if pain is severe or associated with fevers/chills make sure you are promptly seen.

Multiple things: Appendicitis, ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy, colitis, amongst others. Be seen by a doctor if this worsens/recurs, and especially if it worsens. Consider OTC Naprosyn (naproxen) for relief.
