In brief: When?
Ovaries produce cysts each month so this normal and not usually source of pain.
If its just one spot on left or right that she points to with one finger then maybe, if its an area any larger then likely bladder, intestine, endometriosis or uterine. If the pain is a small spot and only 1-2 days a week or so after her cycle, then its ovulation pain.
