Detailed Answer:

Thanks for letting us know your health concern.

I have gone through your query and would like to offer my opinion.

The need for further evaluation depends on the intensity of the pain, the frequency and the associated symptoms.

In view of the history of PCOD, I would suggest a clinical evaluation along with a sonogram to exclude any cysts that may have enlarged and responsible for the pain. Other likely causes such as infection in the lower urinary tract and the pelvis also should be excluded.

If you have not yet received your period and are sexually active, pregnancy should also be suspected.

Hope you find this information useful. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.
