Brief Answer:
Pain can be due to various causes

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Lower belly or lower abdominal pain can be due to many causes like urine infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, some pathology in the uterus and its surrounding structures and chronic constipation. It can also be present in premenstrual period or due to cramps in early pregnancy.
Negative urine pregnancy test rules out any pregnancy.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined internally to rule out pelvic inflammatory disease, investigated including ultrasound, urine examination and get appropriate treatment.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
