Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.
This does not sound like bowel obstruction since, bowel obstruction by definition is a condition in which the patient is unable to pass stool or flatus at all, there should be absolute constipation. If the patient has passing stool or flatus, then the criteria for bowel obstruction is not fulfilled.
This can however, be acute appendicitis or a syndrome known as Mittelschmerz syndrome, which is essentially mid cycle pain associated with ovulation. Other differentials like gastroenteritis, ovarian cyst etc. should also be considered.
Acute abdominal pain should not be managed at home and laxatives and suppositories should not be given as they may aggravate the cramping and the symptoms. So, the best course of action will be to go to an Urgent Care or the nearest ER.
Hope this helps.
