Some women suffer from chronic pelvic pain. Chronic pelvic pain is defined as pain below the belly button that lasts longer than six months. Pelvic pain can be mild or severe, dull or sharp, intermittent or constant. Most women experience pelvic pain in some form about their menstrual cycle.

Determine the Cause of Pelvic Pain

To determine the cause of pelvic pain and to be able to effectively treat it, patients with pelvic pain will need to undergo a full exam. Treatments for the condition vary in relation to the source of the pain, but many patients find relief with treatments like:

  • Birth control pills
  • Hormone therapy
  • Surgery to remove a cyst, fibroid, or tumor
  • Antibiotics
  • Over the counter pain relievers

Pelvic pain may also indicate a more serious health condition, like an inflamed appendix or a bladder infection.

In many cases, pelvic pain is often an indication of a more serious health condition such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Vulvodynia
  • Uterine fibroids or cysts
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Scar tissue from surgery or infection
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Infection or sexually transmitted disease
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
