    Your spleen is behind your stomach.  Any pain in that area may be the beginnings of a stomach ulcer.

    Source(s): Had 4 ulcers, the last two were bleeding ulcers. On proton pump inhibitors for the rest of my life.

    Menstrual/ovulation pain should always be around/below your belly button and maybe even your thighs. It should never be referred to your splenic area. See a doctor if symptoms persist.

      I remember years ago before my period I would get a bloated feeling there as well in my upper abdomen

    There's no way to tell from a bunch of random symptoms what exactly is going on with you.  Ovulation does NOT cause pain around your spleen or gallbladder area.  Neither does PMS.  You need to see a doctor if this is something that happens more than once.  Only your doctor can order a CT scan to see what's really happening.  If it continues past 24 hours, go see your GP.
