What besides pregnancy could be the reason for fluttering and sudden jolt movements in the abdomen ?

What could be causing movements in my abdomen that feel like baby kicks? I have not taken a pregnancy yet but haven t had a period for several months. I know it isn t gas or any other type of stomach discomfort (it feels completely different from that). it is more a feeling of fluttering & sudden jolt movements.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The movements in abdomen can be due to intestinal movements called peristalsis also but since you have not had periods in several months you need to get a ultrasound done to find the reason.Please get a ultrasound done to rule out pregnancy and if you are not pregnant then it should be intestinal movements.
