my boyfriend and i have been having sex frequently and have recently been changing postings a lot and trying lots of new things.
but the other day i started to feel a kind of pain in my lower abdomen area around where i think my ovaries would be.
i know for a fact that neither my boyfriend nor i have any STDs and we've had sex so many times before and nothing like this has ever happened.
also, where the pain is, there is swelling and there are two lumps on either side diagonally down from my hips.

so i was wondering if this has anything to do with the new postitions we've been trying with sex. it never hurt when we had sex and i never bled or anything like that. but i'm just concerned it might be something serious.
please help!!!!!

You really should see your doctor ASAP. Swelling is a sign of something definitely WRONG.

Also, you say that you're sure you two have no STDs -- have you had at least two screenings each, at least 6 months apart? If not, you cannot be sure that neither of you is infected.

Just to second what daria said - swelling is a sign that there is something wrong, and you need to see a doctor. While you're there, if you're nt up to date with your screenings and gyn exams, you can get that taken care of as well. In addition, if your boyfriend isn't up to date, it's a good idea for him to get tested as well.

Until you get this cleared up, might also be a good idea to hold off on the sex.
