Pains in my lower right abdomen very sore when I touch it around the area of my ovaries, could this be my apendix or my ovaries?

Pains in my lower right abdomen very sore when I touch it around the area of my ovaries, could this be my apendix or my ovaries?

Either or none: The lower right side of the abdomen, just inside the hip bone is where your appendix sits. If this area is very tender, see a doctor.
If you produce an egg and/or a small cyst ruptures, this may also cause right or left sided pain, but a little lower, usually.
But there are also other organs, like your colon on either side, or the kidney tubes, or the bladder.
An exam or ultrasound may be helpful. ...Read more

Stomach sore to touch after drinking alcohol and eating spicey food?
