Chronic pelvic pain is pain that lasts about six months or longer. The pain may come and go or remain constant. Many times, pelvic pain is related to problems in the reproductive organs, the urinary tract, or the bowel.
Some of the most common causes of pelvic pain are:
You might also experience pelvic pain during ovulation, which is called mittelschmerz. In some cases, pelvic pain might also indicate ovarian cancer or miscarriage.
You may experience pelvic pain in different parts of the pelvis, such as the abdomen, vagina, rectal area, or lower back. The pain might get worse during ovulation or before menstruation. Some women experience sensations like cramping, sharp or shooting pains, or a dull ache.
If you have pelvic pain along with abnormal bleeding, heavy periods, or flu-like symptoms, make an appointment at Pure OBGYN to have a specialist diagnose your symptoms.
Treatment for pelvic pain may include several different approaches. You start with a full physical and pelvic exam at Pure OBGYN so your physician can diagnose the root cause of your pain. Common treatments include:
Exercise, good posture, and certain vitamins — like B1 and magnesium — can relieve symptoms associated with pelvic pain.
Depending on the cause of your pain, you might benefit from hormone therapy or other medications to help relieve your symptoms.
If your condition doesn’t respond to other treatments, surgery can fix pelvic floor structural issues or improve nerve signaling to reduce pain.
You might also benefit from physical therapy or pain-relieving medication.
At Pure OBGYN, your physician works with you on an individual basis to not only relieve your pain, but treat the underlying condition so you maintain excellent gynecologic and reproductive health.
