    Pregnancy should always be excluded in a woman of childbearing age before considering other causes. So you should do a pregnancy test soon. I am unsure if you mean abdominal distension, the sensation of feeling pressure or bloated or can actual feel a difference on the left side of the abdomen. This could be due to constipation or gas in the colon and so on. An enlarged spleen may also be responsible. You should see a doctor who can examine you and possibly run a number of tests before diagnosing you.
