Pelvic Pain Q & A
What does pelvic pain indicate?
Pelvic or abdominal pain is experienced in the lowest parts of the abdomen and pelvis and is frequent among several women. Pelvic or abdominal pain is address based on which symptoms are occurring when it is taking place, and if the woman is or is not pregnant. In most situations, the pain will be alleviated with a form of medication, but in some circumstances additional treatment such as a laparoscopy may be necessary. Organs which can cause discomfort in the abdomen or pelvis include:
- Fallopian Tubes
What are the causes of pelvic pain?
Some internal and reproductive conditions can cause pain in the abdomen or pelvis, and they can be grouped as either ongoing or acute, meaning short-term. Acute pain is being experienced for the first time, and chronic pains are ongoing and last for an extended period. Conditions which can cause pain include:
- Menstrual pains
- Rupture of Cysts
- Premature Labor
- Ectopic Pregnancy
- Placental Abruption
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
How will abdominal and pelvic pain be treated?
The first thing that the gynecologist will need to do is to determine the reason for the pain. The doctor will ask questions about the person’s symptoms and medical history in addition to performing an assessment. Based on the results, the gynecologist will either recommend additional testing or can suggest a form of treatment. If a miscarriage is a risk or if there is a possibility of an ectopic pregnancy, an ultrasound will be required. Surgery can also be required. Laparoscopy is used to view the insides the abdomen and/or pelvis to identify the reason for the pain. A camera will be inserted through a small incision during the laparoscopy so the surgeon can view the problem area inside the woman’s body. Many pains can be treated with antibiotics or additional medications.
