One-sided abdominal pain could be due to ovulation

For women, a transient pain or cramps on one side of your lower abdomen a couple of weeks before your period is due is likely caused by ovulation. — Filepic

Experiencing abdominal discomfort or a cramping sensation midway through your menstrual cycle could be indicative of ovulation pain.

This pain is also known as mittelschmerz, a term of German origin that translates to “middle pain”, aptly coined to describe the timing of this symptom during the menstrual cycle.
