Left sided ache: Could be gas-try simethicone or constipation -could try prune juice or milk of magnesia . Could be ovary(cyst/ovulation), tube infection, rarely I have seen ureoplasma vaginitis with pain ,or rarely ectopic pregnancy Diverticulitis an outpouching in the colon is unlikely in a 25 year old . Since it has been there 2 days would follow up with MD as may need antibiotics or imaging
