Pregnancy is the most prevalent cause of fluttering in a woman’s lower belly, according to SteadyHealth. After giving birth, undergoing associated surgery, or experiencing a miscarriage, fluttering can also be triggered by nerve endings. When nerves and scar tissue combine, new nerve connections and endings are created, which can cause fluttering, particularly in women who have undergone a caesarean section. Other reasons of fluttering include digestive and systemic conditions like acid reflux disease.
According to SteadyHealth, additional causes of fluttering in a woman’s lower belly include gas, constipation, a hiatal hernia, tumours, cancer, and heartburn. Ulcers, alcoholic liver disease, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, or pancreatic problems may cause fluttering in women. Inflammation of the lining of the stomach, the gall bladder, or the diverticulum, as well as parasites, can also cause abdominal fluttering in women. The sensation of fluttering may originate in the colon, and it may be caused by a cyst, a structural blockage in a blood vessel, or a tear in the arterial wall.
According to SteadyHealth, overexertion or overexercising might produce fluttering. If a woman has bad posture or sits for a long time, this might lead to abdominal twitching and sometimes painful spasms. Women with slimmer builds may often detect arterial pulses more frequently and with more ease than women with larger bodies. If the fluttering is coordinated with the woman’s heartbeat, it is likely that she is experiencing arterial pulses.
