Do I Have A Hernia If It Pops Out When I Strain
Sounds like a hernia: Hernias are holes in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining of the abdominal cavity stretches out, creating a sac.

Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac.

I think I have a hernia, but got diagnose with groin strain. There was no ultra sound done. Still in a fair amount of pain. What do you guys think?
Exam is best: Physical exam is usuay the best test for a hernia, unless tenderness and/or obesity limit the quality is the exam. An ultrasound can help, but not usually. Groin strain takes a while to get better, so probably correct. You can always return for a follow up visit if it persists. Another exam is not a terrible idea.

Push it back: You have a defect in the fibromuscular wall of your abdominal cavity. Your intestine is pushing its way into the opening and you can push it back inside. Eventually you will need this fixed as there is a small risk of strangulation or twisting of the intestine doing this. Surgery will close the defect and prevent the protrusion. ...Read more
Popping: That's an unusual description. Is the popping under the skin? (it would be a sign of pneumothorax which is very serious). Is it only with deep breath? Are you short of breath? Coughing? More information is necessary. ...Read more
Possibly: Technically, any sort of straining which increases the pressure of the abdominal cavity can cause a hernia. The usual mechanism is lifting something heavy, but the mechanism you proposed is possible. Hernias occur more easily in males (because the leftover tunnel from development is larger), but they can happen to females too. If you think you may have a hernia, visit your doctor.
