In brief: Unlikely
Abdominal pain and the associated possibilities of diagnoses are endless.
It is important to talk to a doctor to obtain a detailed history, a thorough exam, and tests that can confirm or rule out what we suspect you may have. Without this, we can only take an educated guess based on what's common. You may have ovarian cysts, pelvic infection, diverticulitis, hernia, but appendicitis is unlikely.

In brief: Not necessarily
If one has very uncomfortable tummy pain, and is normally in good health, plus is not pregnant, the possibilities include: appendicitis (usually r lower quadrant), diverticulitis, kidney stone (very painful), constipation (crampy), stomach flu, etc.
.. Most people with "moderate pain", more than mild pain, may need a doctor's evaluation to be sure it is not appendicitis, which would need surgery.
