Thanks for writing to us.
Pain and pressure on the lower side of abdomen are likely to be related to a premenstrual syndrome. Since your pregnancy test is negative, ectopic pregnancy ios not likelyu. Over the counter anti spasmodic might help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello. Thanks for the question.Right lower abdominal pain can be due to various causes like kidney stone,appendicitis, ovarian cyst,colitis and also ectopic pregnancy etc .Ideally this should be investigated with sonography.I think you should get it done sooner to know the cause of pain.An appropriate treatment can be planned after that. Thank you.

It could be an ectopic pregnancy. And yes, you need to go to the ER.

Get well soon.
