Thanks for posting your query.

Pain in lower abdomen when the bladder is full with frequent urination can possibly be due to a urine examination will help in diagnosis. If the urinary infection is ruled out then the cause of lower abdomen pain can be related to the delay in conception.

An ultrasound of lower abdomen will help in detecting the cause.

You need a thorough evaluation by a Gynecologist as there are various causes for the symptoms and they can be ruled out only after a Physical Examination and investigations. Once the cause is confirmed, you will be treated accordingly.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Thanks for writing again.
You have mentioned in your query that you are trying for a baby with no luck. The inability to conceive or delay in the same after repeated trials might have a relation with the lower abdomen pain that you are having. To find out the exact cause, detailed investigations are needed under the guidance of your gynecologist.
Hope my answer is helpful. Write back if you have further queries.
Wishing you a trouble free speedy recovery
