You need to have an ultrasound pelvis and abdomen to rule out any visceral pathology. Ectopic is a possibility but other viscera should be assessed first to confirm that no pathology exists elsewhere.

If normal or unremarkable it can be due to stomach or gastritis. Using anti spasmodic like Drotaverine as well as OTC analgesics like acetaminophen or Ibuprofen can be helpful for symptomatic relief.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
