Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain affects many women and may be symptomatic and caused by a wide variety of conditions, from endometriosis or fibroids, to more serious conditions like cancer.

It is not easy to pinpoint the exact cause of pelvic pain since it can be a symptom of many different conditions. If the pain is persistent and recurring, it is recommended you meet with a specialist to discuss your personal health history, your current health circumstances, and the symptoms you are experiencing to determine the cause of the pain.

Pain-Causing Health Conditions

If you’re experiencing pelvic pain, these are some of the conditions specific to women’s health that commonly result in pain:

  • Reproductive disorders affecting the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes

    • Fibroids, noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear for women in their 40s and 50s

    • Cysts, a sac-like pocket of tissue that contains fluid, air, or other substances

    • Endometriosis, a condition that occurs when bits of the tissue that lines the uterus grow on other pelvic organs, such as the ovaries or fallopian tubes

    • Pelvic inflammatory disease, an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs often caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STIs)

    • Miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, which typically occurs because the fallopian tube is damaged by inflammation or is misshaped

  • Bowel or bladder issues

    • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common disorder that affects the large intestine

    • Ulcerative colitis, a severe inflammatory bowel disease which may require surgery

    • Crohn’s Disease, an inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation of the digestive tract

  • Urinary tract infection and disorders of the kidneys or bladder

    • Kidney stones
