Pain, pressure in left abdominal area under ribs, sore body, delayed periods, missed contraceptive pills. Reason?

I ve been having pain/pressure in my abdominal area, on the left side under my ribs, and occasionally the other side, under my belly button. My whole body is also sore. Especially my lower back. I ve just recently ran out of my birth control in July. I didn t get my normal period, I just bleed for 3 days a week or two before my period was due. I haven t gotten it yet this month, so I thought I may be pregnant, but the test came back negative. Is it maybe too early? Next week will make my period late. Or is this something else? Can you help?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Left side abdominal pain associated with lower back pain and below belly button pain can all be caused by bladder or urinary tract/kidney infection. It is mostly associated with burning during urinating and more often urinating.
Same pain can appear when there is ovarian infection, uterus infection or ovarian cyst. It can also be a sign of pregnancy or what is very dangerous ectopic pregnancy. Pregnancy test can by failed, you should repeat it after a week or so.
You should have abdomen ultrasound, blood tests for infection, urine tests and visit gynecologist for examination and ultrasound.
Take care
