Causes of Pelvic Pain
In most cases, identifying the causes of painful symptoms ensures that you receive the most appropriate care. Pelvic pain is caused by various diseases. Common causes of pelvic pain include:
- Cysts, fibroids, scar tissue (adhesions)
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic inflammatory disease, infection of pelvic organs
- Menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding)
Pelvic pain may cause various complications affecting the urinary tract and bowels because of chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia. If suffering from pelvic organ prolapse, your pelvic floor muscles are subject to immense pain over time.
What is pelvic inflammatory disease?
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a grave medical condition following tissues and pelvic organs’ infection. PID starts with sexually transmitted infections that may go undetected, allowing the infection to go untreated, spread, and form scar tissue. Millions of women are victims of pelvic inflammatory disease, doubling as a primary cause of female infertility, ectopic pregnancies, and pelvic pain.
Steps in Diagnosing Pelvic Pain
Many factors cause pelvic pain, creating the importance of a definitive medical history, reviewing symptoms, and physicals. Your physician may use lab tests like urinalysis, blood work, diagnostic imaging, or ultrasounds.
Minimally invasive assessments like hysteroscopy could be performed when there is a need to see the inside of your fallopian tubes, uterus, and cultures of irregular tissue to facilitate further evaluations under microscopes.
Treatment of Pelvic Pain
Treatment for pelvic pain is varied, depending on underlying causes. Your remedy may include:
- Pain relievers
- Physical therapy
- Hormone therapy
- Robotic surgery/ laparoscopic surgery removes adhesions, fibroids, cysts, or cancer during hysterectomy or oophorectomy.
Your doctor may also attempt traditional treatments before advancing towards the least invasive procedures if the need arises.
