Women With Pelvic Pain Should Consider these Factors

There are ways that you have contributions from your emotional, thinking, physical fit self: it may not be all a gynecologic problem.

Most women with pain that is disabling and doesn’t respond to either NSAIDs like ibuprofen or hormonal contraception may need a laparoscopic surgery to help understand what is going on.

Although telemedicine can be helpful for initial evaluation, pelvic examination, ultrasound, and cultures for infection will be very important.

Hysterectomy can cure types of chronic pelvic pain, however almost 1/3 of women who have had a hysterectomy for chronic pain will not experience relief.

Chronic pelvic pain that is accompanied by painful periods is most likely endometriosis.

Women who have had STDs can have chronic pelvic pain if they are left untreated. Pelvic inflammatory disease with associated endometritis, which is infection of the uterine lining, can contribute to endometriosis.

Untreated pelvic pain can both negatively and permanently affect your sex life.

There are injections in some pelvic nerves that can help relieve chronic pain.

What is important is that you communicate with your provider so that proper treatment can be undertaken.
