HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, such symptoms could be due to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) as a matter of fact this need to be ruled out till then you can managed the pain with "Tab Diclofenac 50 mg once in day" try to have rest as long as it is possible better to get done the MRI test, hope this information helps, take care.
