Can diverticulitis be contagious?

First introduction to this ailment. Is it contagious? I went to ER with strong abdominal pains in my left groin area. Dr. told me to take meds prescribed and check with my doctor to follow up. My symptoms are lower intestinal area/groin pain, tired, weak, and some dizziness. Please respond, especially if this is contagious. Thank you! JM
