Is pain in the lower back and abdomen a common symptom of premenopause?

I did a pregnancy test and was negative. Im 47yo female healthy overall, but missed period for May and have been having lower back pain that sometimes radiates to legs other times to lower abdomen. On lower back mostly on the left side. This started about two weeks after I missed my period. Is this common with Premenopause ?

I had 3day 8 cells perfect embrio (the embriologyst said) transfer on 10.03 2014. last night at 02.30 am - 4-5 day after the transfer I felt sharp pain lower abdomen starting from the front pushing toward the back.During the 4 day from the morning on several occasions I felt some cramps as well, lower back pain and my ovaries were like burning sensation or sore. I usually feel ovulation, and have been checking my symptoms with a doctor check up and my symptoms were confirmed to be true, that I did feel the ovulation and ovulated at the time I felt it. So, this morning at 2.30 am I thought that it is implantation as it was 4 days past 3 day embryo transfer. But as they started I remembered that I forgot to put progesterone gel that night. I panicked and walked to put it, went to pee and went to bed again. I am worried that by getting out of the bed and waling to put the progesterone vaginal gel, I might have disrupted the implantation of the embryo. Please tell me whether I have stopped the implantation, and does the embryo still has a chance
