In brief: Could be serious
You should see your doctor for bad pelvic pain since several of the possible causes are quite serious.
You could have a tubal pregnancy or an ovarian cyst that has ruptured and is bleeding into the abdomen causing swelling. You could have a twisted ovary that is losing its blood supply. You could have diverticulitis of the bowel which can rupture causing an abdominal infection.

In brief: ?cyst
Lots of things can cause pelvic pain and swelling or bloating.
Top of the list would be an ovarian cyst. Other possibilities: a uterine fibroid, pregnancy, infection, severe constipation. Bad pain is obviously abnormal-see your doctor.
