Dear Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community. I am sorry that you are having this pain on your left side.

Did you discuss cramping with your gynecologist or did the cramps occur after your appointment?

You might want to call your doctor and let her know your symptoms. She might want to do an ultrasound to find out what is causing this lingering pain.

These types of pain can be anything as simple as indigestion to something more serious like appendicitis or ovarian cyst. 

Cramping before and during your period is normal, but if the pain worsens and your period is finished, then a call to your doctor is suggested.

Did this help Anon?
