Every day, millions of women suffer from pelvic pain. It can be caused by one of a number of problems. The pain is felt in the lower part of the abdomen between the groin and navel. Most women experience it as menstrual cramps or ovulation. It can also develop as a result of a food intolerance or some other gastrointestinal issue. Some types of pelvic pain can indicate a more serious health problem.
Know Your Body
Pain is a sign that something is not right. Pelvic pain is something that you may come to expect, such as menstrual cramps, or it could signal a problem like interstitial cystitis. Knowing your body can help you determine whether the pain you feel is normal for you or something new.
When the pain is severe, lasts longer than expected or you cannot identify the reason, you should be examined by a doctor. You could have an infection, ectopic pregnancy, fibroids, urinary stones or some other condition that should be addressed.
Chronic Pelvic Pain
Sometimes scarring in the pelvic region can lead to chronic pain. Sitting for long periods of time can also cause pain. When there are issues with lower back pain, occasionally the discomfort can radiate into the pelvic area.
The female reproductive system includes several structures. There are certain conditions that can lead to pain in any of these organs. Muscles, joints and nerves in this region can become irritated, sometimes due to scarring from childbirth or surgery.
Chronic pain can also be caused by problems with the lower gastric system. Constipation, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease are just a few of the common problems.
Proper diagnosis is needed in order to develop an effective treatment plan. If your pelvic pain develops suddenly, it is important that you see a doctor. You could have a medical emergency such as appendicitis. When pelvic pain is new, gets worse or disrupts your daily activities, you should seek medical attention.
