Pelvic Pain Q & A

Why do I have pelvic pain?  

Pelvic pain in women is most commonly associated with monthly menstruation and ovulation. Over half of menstruating women experience minor to moderate pain for at least a day or two during each cycle. But it’s also possible for your ongoing pelvic pain to be a sign of:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Endometriosis or fibroids
  • Urinary tract or bladder infection
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Displaced intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Interstitial cystitis (chronic bladder inflammation)
  • Ovarian cysts, as with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

You may also experience pelvic pain because of pregnancy complications, such as an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. 

When should I see a doctor for pelvic pain?

The leading OB/GYNs at Contemporary Women's Care encourage you to schedule an exam if your pelvic pain occurs regularly or doesn’t improve after several days. It’s important to have an evaluation if your pelvic pain is associated with:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Infertility 
  • Fever 

If you experience pelvic pain that’s sudden, sharp, or severe, it’s essential to seek immediate emergency care. The dedicated team at Contemporary Women's Care can follow up with you afterward to provide ongoing care and management of your condition.  

What is the treatment for pelvic pain?

Contemporary Women's Care provides comprehensive diagnostic solutions to get to the root of your pelvic pain. Your OB/GYN may request a blood draw or ultrasound to help confirm or rule out certain conditions. 

Once your doctor diagnoses your condition, she may recommend any of the following pelvic pain treatments:

  • Dietary counseling 
  • Pain-relieving drugs 
  • Hormonal birth control
  • Antibiotic medications 
  • Weight-loss management
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • NovaSure® endometrial ablation

If conservative treatments aren’t effective for resolving your pelvic pain, your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care may recommend surgery.
