Brief Answer:
Can be due to ovarian pathology or urinary infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The dull pain on the lower left side like that of ovulation or menstruation can be due to a urinary infection, an ovarian pathology or an intestinal infection.
This can be diagnosed after a proper examination and investigations like ultrasound scan and a routine urine test. You can increase your fluid intake and take a mild antispasmodic drug available over the counter for relief.
Doing a hot compress in the area can also help.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Hello,
I had done ultrascan and was told I had pyelonephritis and treated with ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin and now this dull pain. So what next?

Brief Answer:
Can be urine infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Even after the treatment of pyelonephritis, there can be mild persistent infection causing the pain. It is better to get urine culture sensitivity done to confirm this.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
