Hi,
Though she is not having painful urination, the most common cause of lower abdominal pain in a girl child is urinalysis may be done for evaluation.
Other possible causes are mesentric lymphadenitis ( enlarged lymph nodes inside the tummy) and appenditicitis. An ultrasound scan would be helpful in these cases.
If the pain persists, get these tests done.

I hope that answers your question.
