Pelvic pain is often caused by a gynecologic problem, but it can also develop due to pulled muscles or problems with your bladder and other organs or tissues in your pelvic region.
Sometimes it’s easy to ignore pelvic pain because it feels more like an uncomfortable pressure. Or you may suddenly develop a sharp but short-lived pain and wonder whether it is something to worry about.
Here’s a good guideline to follow: Any type of pain or uncomfortable feeling in your pelvic region that lingers for several days or recurs should be evaluated by the team at Garden OB/GYN to be sure it’s not a sign of a serious problem.
Many potential problems can cause pelvic pain. Some of the most common include:
Treatment for pelvic pain depends on the underlying cause. Your doctor at Garden OB/GYN gets to the root of the problem with a thorough pelvic exam and ultrasound or blood tests to confirm the diagnosis.
Your treatment might include pain-relieving medications, hormonal medications, or antibiotics if you have an infection. If your symptoms are severe or diagnostic tests show large fibroids, cysts, or extensive endometriosis, you may need minimally invasive surgery to remove the growths.
