Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice.

When did the pain start? Do you have the pain when lying down or walking?
Are you having any other symptoms, such as a change in your bowel habits, fever or feeling nauseous?

Anonymous, have you told a parent? If not please do so. Your parent needs to contact your pediatrician's office today.

Your ovaries, appendix and the last section of your small intestines, most of your large intestines and your colon are in your lower abdomen. One or more of these organs could be the cause of your pain. With a physical exam, your doctor can determine the cause.

Keep me updated.
