In brief: Unsure why

If this is a new development and only lasts a few days, it may be related to a normal ovarian cyst.
Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok to take in the short term. If the pain is severe or if this has been going on for more than a few weeks, then you should be seen by your gynecologist for an exam.
