Pelvic Pain Q & A

What is pelvic pain?

Pelvic pain is a common symptom the gynecology team at Modern OBGYN Care can readily assess and diagnose. There are many possible causes, and the pain can range from mild aching to severe and debilitating. Through various tests, you can discover what’s causing your pelvic pain and get on track to relief with an appropriate treatment plan. 

Pelvic pain originates anywhere in the pelvic region, which holds your sexual and reproductive organs as well as a number of other structures. Pelvic pain doesn’t always originate in reproductive organs like the uterus or ovaries, but for women, it often does. The team at Modern OBGYN Care considers all the possibilities while making a diagnosis. 

What causes pelvic pain?

Pelvic pain is experienced by both men and women and can result from conditions that affect both genders, like appendicitis or a kidney infection. The team at Modern OBGYN Care specializes in assessing and treating pelvic pain in the female reproductive system, which has many possible causes and can come with other complications like infertility. 

During your diagnostic visit, the team at Modern OBGYN Care asks you to describe any other symptoms you have, like abnormal bleeding. They also consider your personal and family medical history while searching for a cause of pelvic pain. They can diagnose and treat:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Pregnancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

Menstrual cramps are perhaps the most common and mild cause of pelvic pain in gynecology. They happen when your uterus sheds its lining roughly once a month and go away when your period ends. 

How is pelvic pain treated?

There are many ways of managing pelvic pain at home. You can apply heat, drink water, take over-the-counter pain relievers, and take other common-sense steps toward easing the pain. However, the most effective and long-term way to manage pelvic pain of any kind is to address the underlying cause. 

After making a diagnosis, the team at Modern OBGYN Care decides on the best way for you to manage your condition. Although some conditions affecting the reproductive system are not curable, most are manageable with individualized, specialized care. Your treatment plan might consist of:

  • Medications
  • Hormonal birth control
  • Antibiotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Minimally invasive surgery

You can also continue your home care regimen to ease pelvic discomfort if you find a method that works for you.
