Hello Rhos, Thank you for the question.
What is your usual menstrual cycle? The menstrual cycle is calculated from the first day of menstruation until the first day of the next menstruation. A menstrual cycle that is classified as normal is between 21-35 days. Lower abdominal pain can be caused by:
ovulation pain, which is the release of an egg from the ovary into the Fallopian tube. The pain due to ovulation is usually felt on one side of the stomach and varies from month to month depending on which ovary is releasing an egg. This complaint is usually felt in the middle of the menstrual cycle a sign of menstruation, usually occurs near the end of the menstrual cycle, is felt as a cramp and lasts 24-48 hours before you menstruate. Apart from abdominal pain, you will also experience other menstrual signs such as breast pain, increased appetite, flatulence, acne, mood swings, and difficulty sleeping. In addition, it is necessary to think about other possible causes of left abdominal pain such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, colitis, constipation, and so on.
You can apply warm compresses to the sore stomach or take paracetamol if the stomach pain gets worse. If this complaint really bothers you, please consult your doctor for further examination and treatment.
