Test with doctor: If you are getting different answers on home pregnancy tests then you need to see a doctor for a blood pregnancy test (BHCG). It is very important to know which test is correct. After that your doctor can evaluate the possible causes of your pain. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: For aches in the abdomen, with a negative pregnancy test, one should call the primary care doctor or the ob-gyn (sometimes the aches are not due to menstrual or pregnancy issues). The doctor can get the details and offer some advice. Since it has been about 15 days since a possible conception date, the pregnancy test could still turn positive this week, even though the first test was negative. ...Read more

See your doctor.: There are many things that can cause right lower sided abdominal pain in a young woman. Since it is worse with standing, however, it should be evaluated by your doctor. It is not likely, but always possible that you could have appendicitis, and that needs to be looked at. Good luck. ...Read more

Warrants exam: Intermittent appendicitis comes to mind for someone your age. Irritable bowel or colitis also possible. Heck it could be an inguinal hernia. You deserve a good abdominal exam and then go from there. ...Read more

Maybe: Usually, pain or discomfort from a groin hernia is in the groin. I have seen many patients with and without hernias however that have pain in the right lower abdomen. Best way to find out is to see your primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

See below: You could be pregnant or the discomfort may be your menses coming on. If you are pregnant that would not be the cause of your symptoms since a 1-2 week old fetus is too tiny to cause abdominal or back pain. ...Read more
