There could be a couple possible explanations to this, and one of them definitely could be a sign of an infection or an STD, so if you're not up to date on both your STD screenings AND your annual gynecological visits (ie. pelvic exams) start there.
It could also be a sign of ovarian cysts or something similar (I got an ovarian cyst once and didn't know it until I experienced a sharp, stabbing pain on one side while having sex, went into the gynecologist and sure enough, a cyst it was!), plus there could be more explanations, but the STD screenings and annual checkup are the best places to start.
