Get seen: Abdominal pain for 4 days is not normal. Hard to say what may be causing it, but it could be something serious. Get seen today.

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is complex as there are several organs in the pelvis. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, bladder, appendix, intestines, colon and rectum can all be the source. Pelvic pain requires and examination to help organize the evaluation. Since you are late for your period you should check a pregnancy test

Dr. Livingston is right, especially since your period is early (which he meant to say, I'm sure!) Typos are a curse! And we cannot edit our answers after we click on send.
