Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

The pain you are experiencing can either be associated with ovulation or muscle pain.
Since the pain is exaggerated by movement muscle pain is more likely.
You can apply ice on the area of pain and take Tylenol.
There is nothing more need to be done.
Your symptom background is not indicative of anything concerning or to be worried about.

Hope this answers your questions
