MESSAGES TO
Irkizanil from Singapore asked a question

What could be the cause of bloating and cramping in the abdomen?

I'm a 23 years old female. I've been having bloating since my last period (2 weeks ago) up till now. Sometimes there's also cramps at my left lower abdomen. And I didn't have any cervical mucus since my last period. What could be the cause of this?

Dear Irkizanil,

Bloating and cramping are what doctors term as "vague" symptoms as they do not specifically point to any particular organ or structure in the body, yet sometimes these can be the first signs of something more serious happening within the body. 

For a younger person, female, like yourself, it very often could be due to hormonal changes or fluctuations during the menstrual cycle. Some are associated with "premenstrual symptoms" such as headaches, mood change, feeling of water retention, or even acne outbreaks. 

However, as mentioned earlier, sometimes these symptoms could be due to other medical conditions, such as endometriosis, or growths within the pelvis such as ovarian cysts.

If the symptoms are persistent or worsening, it may be a good idea to get an ultrasound scan of the pelvis (which is easy to perform).

Best regards

Dr YF Fong
