Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Pain in the let lower abdomen and groin in a young female could be due to -
1) Pelvic inflammatory disease - Imaging could be normal and you may have leukorrhoea.
2) Urinary tract infection - may have associated dysuria and frequency
3) Tubo-ovarian pathologies - are usually visible on imaging studies unless it is a transient problem like torsion
4) Ectopic pregnancy- needs to be ruled out as your periods are overdue.
Discuss with your GP and get a good examination and some basic investigations done to sort out the issue.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
