Pelvic Pain

What can cause pelvic pain in women?

Pelvic pain is defined as pain or pressure in the portion of the torso above the legs and below the umbilicus (belly button). This pain may be due to a variety of causes including pelvic inflammatory disease, painful intercourse, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, constipation, or pregnancy. 

Do I see gynecology or another specialist?

A visit to a gynecologist can help narrow down possible causes of pelvic pain in women. If it is not related to internal gynecologic structures, then a gynecology visit can still lead to a referral to the correct specialty and help assist you in your path to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. 

What are non-gynecologic reasons for pelvic pain?

Unrelated causes may indicate an issue with other structures in the abdominopelvic cavity, including but not limited to constipation, appendicitis, musculoskeletal structures in women of advanced age, bowel issues including gas, or bladder issues including kidney stones. 

What are gynecologic causes for pelvic pain?

Gynecologic causes of pelvic pain can be related to menstrual cramps or PMS, an ectopic pregnancy, certain movements in pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, urinary tract infections (UTIs), pelvic organ prolapse, or painful sexual intercourse (dyspareunia). 

How do I get rid of pelvic pain symptoms?

There are many different treatment options for chronic pelvic pain and pressure in females. Over-the-counter options include pain killers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, hormone control through birth control, physical therapy, and surgery.

Is there a gynecologist near me?

Dr. Gitiforooz, a gynecologist in the area, can help diagnose the causes of pelvic pain in women. Schedule your appointment to avoid a long wait to the proper diagnosis.
