In brief: Possible, unlikely

While it is certainly possible to have similar pain as round ligament pain despite not being pregnant, i doubt the pain in question is "round ligament" pain because as far as i know, round ligament pain is only diagnosed in pregnant women.
Thus, if your current pain persists or worsens, it is worth contacting your health care provider.

Yes, especially if the uterus is significantly enlarged, a large ovarian cyst is present or if adhesions are also present.
