Pelvic Pain
Your physician at Women’s Health Now can help you manage or alleviate pelvic pain by identifying the causes and developing a personalized treatment plan. Some pelvic pain is normal and is related to monthly ovulation or related to pre-menstrual conditions. However, if pelvic pain has become a chronic, annoying disruption in your life, this could indicate a more serious condition. A Women’s Health Now physician can provide a personalized treatment plan.

Note: Pelvic pain that comes on suddenly or is severe could indicate a serious condition and should be evaluated immediately in an emergency department.

Pregnant?
If there is any chance that you are suffering chronic pelvic pain and may be pregnant, tell your physician. He or she may order a pregnancy test to rule out the possibility.
At Women’s Health Now we can diagnose chronic pelvic pain with a variety of methods, including:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Ultrasound
  • Laparoscopy
  • Referral to a specialist, if needed

Chronic Pelvic Pain That Usually Requires Treatment
If pelvic pain is caused by any of the following, your physician will want to develop a treatment plan for you:

  • Ovarian cysts
    Abnormal growths that can cause painful bleeding into the ovary
  • Endometriosis
    A condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus implants outside the uterus
  • Fibroids
    Common, benign growths in the muscle of the uterus that can cause pelvic pressure if large
  • Infection or Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
    Caused by bacteria in the lining of the uterus or fallopian tubes
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD)
    Most often caused by chlamydia or gonorrhea

Treatment Options
A number of treatment options are available. These may include:

  • Antibiotics for bacterial infections
  • Surgery to remove ovarian growths or large fibroids
  • Medication
  • Lifestyle changes
