What are the causes of pelvic pain?
The pain can range from mild to severe, dull to sharp, and may come and go or be constant. It is usually a symptom of another condition.
Pelvic pain can be a result of several different causes, many of which can be successfully treated.
Common causes of pelvic pain include:
Painful pelvis associated with gynecologic problems
While pelvic pain in women is commonly associated with the menstrual cycle, it can also develop from other pre-existing conditions such as:
- Duodenitis (inflammation of the initial portion of the small intestine).
- Scar tissues (Abdominal Adhesions).
- Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
How is pelvic pain diagnosed?
Using the most advanced techniques, we determine the causes of pelvic pain so they can be treated appropriately.
Diagnosis begins with a thorough discussion of the symptoms followed by a physical and pelvic exam and Pap test.
Other tests include:
- Urine sample.
- Screening for sexually transmitted infections, particularly chlamydia trachomatis and gonorrhea.
- Blood tests.
- Ultrasound scans to diagnose ovarian cysts or if a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy is suspected.
- MRI scans.

We work diligently to discover the causes of pelvic pain, and to offer options for effective treatment. Our goal is to provide lasting relief of pain as well as the preservation of fertility if desired.

- Lifestyle changes

Laparoscopic surgery to relieve pelvic pain
When the top-rated gynecologic surgeon at KLASS recommends a laparoscopic surgery to treat your pelvic pain, we examine the reproductive organs and treat conditions affecting the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other organs using minimally invasive techniques.
We may recommend a laparoscopy to:
- Determine the cause.
- Investigate conditions that might cause pain such as pelvic inflammatory disease and endometriosis.
- Examine your fallopian tube for obstructions or ectopic pregnancy.
- Examine an abnormality, such as a tissue mass, ovarian cyst, or tumor, which was possibly found in another imaging study.
- Perform numerous curative procedures( Pre Sacral Neurectomy ).
- Observe the extent of ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, or cervical cancer.
- Experiencing discomfort during sexual intercourse.
