Hi, for a few days down I have been having sharp dull pain across from my belly button and around by belly button. I had some pregnancy worries but I don't think this is related. I didn't think it was my ovaries b/c i thought those were down farther. I didn't know if the pain i am experiencing is implantation or if it is my appendix. I had a couple spots when i wiped yesterday but i had taken plan b twice in june and had my period twice. I just want to know how to approach this. sometimes the pain swings across my side and down my hip and then sometimes it swings down into the top part of my pelvic (not so much there)

Hi, For the ovaries it can be in the lower abdomen, pelvic area. It's important to see your doctor and he might suggest getting imaging test done. Best, Daisy July 4, 2012 - 10:50am

  • Hi ForceChild 91,
  • Welcome to EmpowHER.
  • Dull pain near the navel or the upper abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen. This is usually the first sign.
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or vomiting soon after abdominal pain begins
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Fever of 99° F to 102° F
  • Inability to pass gas
  • Almost half the time, other symptoms of appendicitis appear, including:

    • Dull or sharp pain anywhere in the upper or lower abdomen, back, or rectum
    • Painful urination
    • Vomiting that precedes the abdominal pain
    • Severe cramps
    • Constipation or diarrhea with gas

    It's important to see a doctor, so he can examined you.

    Here are some resources for you
