Hi Jessica,

I assume you are a female by your name. Left lower abdominal pain usually does not occur in Appendicitis. It is on the right side.

It can be pain due to ovulation, if you are menstruating. It can also be due to intestinal infection. An ultrasound scan of the whole abdomen will help in confirming the cause.

Hope I have answered your query.

Get well soon.
