Could be a cyst: Sometimes an ovarian cyst foms and causes these symptoms, even while taking the pill. It's important to see your doctor to find out what's going on. A transvaginal ultrasound exam can tell if you have a cyst.

Missed period : Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), cyst, travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical problems. #1 reason is pregnancy.

As Dr. Fowler indicates, get a home urine test strip kit and test yourself to see if you are pregnant. If you are and continue to have localized pain on one side with nausea go and be seen ASAP to make sure that the pregnancy is in your uterus and not in the fallopian tube.
