Many Possibilities: If the pain is severe and accompanied by sudden onset and fever it may be appendicitis. If it is crampy and moves it may be a kidney stone. As you are a female gynecological causes including ectopic pregnancy or ovarian cyst are possibilities. You should see a physician for a work up.
