See your doctor.: That is a diverse, seemingly unrelated grouping of symptoms. In order to sort it out, you need a good evaluation by your doctor, including a history and physical exam and possibly some tests. I would see him/her soon. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends: On the surface the discomfort could be from an umbilical hernia or from a sore strained muscle. Internally there are too many structures to guess the cause of pains without a much more detailed physical exam & medical history. ...Read more

Have been having a dull aching pain about 2-3 inches left of belly button. It's constant for the past hr and happened yesterday as well. Why is this?

Need eval: As a young woman this is potentially the area of your ovaries. There is possibility of cyst or other ovary issue. There are not many other organs in this area except for your colon- so if some thing was twisted or if there was a gas pocket you can get this type of pain. Recommend you see pcp if pain persists. ...Read more

Had sharp pain across belly button. Now have dull pain on left side thru back down to groin. Very painful. Can't see dr until Mon. What to do?

Pain: These symptoms may reflect a kidney stone or a kidney infection. It is atypical for kidney pain to reflect to the navel, but the other symptoms you describe suggest kidney and ureteral pain. The other possibility is an ovarian cyst problem or pelvic tube infection. I recommend you be evaluated sooner than Monday. ...Read more

My bf and i had unprotected sex but he pulled before he came. It has been 2 weeks. Few days ago, i feel dull pain when i press down on my belly button?

You expected this.: You and your bf must know that any responsible advice will be: never neglect to use protection until you are absolutely sure that it will be okay to become pregnant and that there is no chance of an std. It may not be likely that either has happened, but it is not impossible. The dull pain may not be related at all, but see your doctor, get tested as soon as recommended for preg & stds & be safe! ...Read more
