Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment.

Ovulation does: When a woman ovulates the follicle (cyst) that contains the egg breaks open and releases the egg. That cyst also has fluid in it and can therefore irritate the pelvic region (right or left, and sometimes both sides). That pain is exacerbated if the cyst "rupture" causes some mild bleeding. All normal.

Gas pain: could be the cause of pain in this area. If the pain persists or does not move over time, consider other causes such as renal stones, injury, atypical appendicitis (rarely left sided pain) , pancreatitis, and many other rarer conditions. For now apply warm pack and allow him to try to have a bowel movement to see if it alleviates the pain .
