Pelvic Pain

Pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis is common in women. It can be a difficult symptom to live with, as it can compromise a woman’s energy and enjoyment in life. The discomfort from pelvic pain may be constant, cyclic or sporadic.

Pelvic pain has many and disparate causes that Lourdes’ accomplished gynecologists are experienced in identifying and treating. These include many causes that are non gynecologic (for example, damage to the tendons and muscles that line the pelvis, bulging discs in the lower back, arthritis of the sacrum and inflammation of the sacro-iliac joints). Thus, thorough evaluation includes taking a careful medical history, examining the patient when she is experiencing pain, performing a physical and often taking advantage of vaginal ultrasound or other types of imaging tests.

Lourdes’ staff gynecologists have dedicated their careers in part to understanding how to identify and treat gynecologic conditions that, among other manifestations, commonly cause pelvic pain:

If orthopedic and gynecologic causes of pelvic pain are ruled out, or other causes are suspected, Lourdes experienced gynecologists know how to appropriately refer to other specialists, such as rheumatologists for fibromyalgia and gastroenterologists for irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, colitis, celiac disease and Crohn’s disease (inflammatory bowel disease).

Pelvic pain is a symptom that can signal a number of different conditions. Lourdes’ skilled, practiced gynecologists can identify and treat the cause.
