The pain could be ovulatory pain called Mittleschmerz which is common on the right side. Nothing to worry. The pain should not occur as ovulation will not take place when you are on pills.

the fact that i am on the birth control at present time and i am still experiecing pain is what has me concerned. this pain is now radiating to my flank and is a sharp constant pulsation. it has also travled to mid and left sided abdomen and last trip to bathroom have developed clear non smelling discharge. i have felt an ovulation before but this seems much worse.
