Need antibiotics: Hi, sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. If you are having fever and flank pain, I'd recommend you be seen as soon as possible for antibiotic therapy. Fever and flank pain can be signs that the infection has moved up from the bladder and further up into the kidneys, which can become quite serious if not treated promptly. Please try to get seen soon. Hope this helps

The latter often radiates down to the groin and/or the testicles. Check for evidence of stones in the kidney or ureter. An ultrasound of the kidneys will rule out some of these issuesSee 1 more doctor answer

Kidney stones: The most common cause would be a kidney stone trying to pass down the ureter into the bladder. The pain is colicky and severe and it follows the tract of the ureter which is to go to the groin region on the side of the stone.
Flank pain: Studies show that the determination of the cause of flank pain depends on the acuity, severity, duration, & character of that pain, in addition to associated symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or fever. Distention of the structures of the urinary system from a stone causes flank pain. However, the differential diagnosis is large and includes gastrointestinal maladies & referred chest pain.
Possible: Endometriosis may be the cause of flank pain, but there are other reasons to consider as well. If pain is worse during menses makes endometriosis more likely as a cause. Do you have a diagnosis of endometriosis already? Surgery, either laparoscopy or laparotomy, is the only way to make this diagnosis for sure. Good wishes.
