Though I understood JP people say "きゅん/kyun" when they saw something cute or lovely on social medias, but what does おなかの奥がきゅうううん mean here?

I met this sentence in a visual novel, hope someone can explain its meaning to me.

A character said a girl is beautiful, and she felt too embarrassing after that.

キュッ, ギュッ, キュー, キューン, キュン and so on are essentially onomatopoeias that express the feeling of "tightening" or "squeezing" such as those typically associated with angina, upset stomach and menstrual pain. When a young person says 胸がキュンと締め付けられる, it usually implies that they're in love, but if a middle-aged or older person says the same thing, you probably need to advise them to consult a physician. In your context, キュン refers to a certain sensation in women's lower abdominal organs when they are sexually aroused.
