In brief: Lower abd. pain
Left lower abdominal pain- need a physical exam including a pelvic exam to accurately diagnose.
Since you do not have any GI symptoms they may be unlikely but not completely ruled out. Another possibility ovarian or fallopian tube diseases. Please get checked.

In brief: Many possibilities..
Especially in the lower abdomen i would be suspicious of an ovarian cyst that may have ruptured.
Another consideration is the more serious ovarian torsion (twisting) which can result in cut off of blood flow to the ovary. This pain may be intermittent. Also, consider pregnancy with possible ectopic. Less likely etiologies - diverticulitis and even appendicitis. Would get this checked out.
