Thank you for your query.
As your pelvic examination says, you are definitely not in labour.
The pains that you describe could be preparatory for labour, or pre labour as it is called.
This is normal, and if your doctor has examined you, you have no cause for worry.
If the pains intensify, and the uterus starts contracting ( becomes hard ) and you start having vaginal discharge / bleeding then you need to consider labour.
Infections can cause such pains but if you werent told you had an infection during your pelvic exam, its highly unlikely you are having it now.
Take care.
