How frequently do you feel it?

Is there any swelling there?

When did the symptoms start?

How are urine & stool?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Urine and stool are normal but difficult to pass due to pelvic floor tension. Yes there is swelling. I experience it more than twice a month. Its not painful. I often have cramping and pulling of pelvic muscles and digestive issues during ovulation. I dont know when the bubbles/crackling started.

Does it occur during menstruation?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Probably. I am ovulating now, but I really don't know. It just happens. I haven't kept a log. Its not the same like when my stomach growls.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
During menstruation more severe symptoms happen than bubbles and crackling

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be intestinal spasm or peristalsis causing the sound.
Increased peristalsis sound can be heard if there is an obstruction to its passage.
There can be scar tissue.
It can be complication from endometriosis.
There can be ovulation pain or Mittelschmerz too.
As it is a new symptom, I would suggest to take an examination by your doctor.
An ultrasound can be taken.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
