Pain in lower right abdomen for about a week...sometimes pain in ovaries already had period..could it be an ovarian cyst?

Bilateral pelvic pain, abdominal pain during intercourse, acne, and family history of PCOS. Normal pelvic exam and thyroid. Is PCOS a likely cause?
Maybe: Your workup is incomplete. This could be endometriosis as well. You need much more blood work and likely a pelvic US to help determine if PCOs or something else.
