Avoid remaining on empty stomach for long duration. Eat every two hours. Drink lots of fluids to prevent dehydration.
Consult gynecologist. Hormonal changes often affect digestive processes.

If cycle is regular then you can test anywhere between 2 days or a week after missed period.
Ensure that your posture is correct. Exercise regularly. If pain is persistent then use alternating hot and cold packs. Take adequate rest and avoid physical exertion.
