Good night doc, I want to ask what is pelvic pain?

1 Answer:

Hello Inka,


Pain is an unpleasant sensation that can arise due to interference with body tissues. Pelvic pain is pain that is felt in the lower abdomen, in the area between the navel to the pubic area, to the left and right. Pain that is felt varies from sharp pain, dull pain, pain that radiates to the back or groin area, lost arise, constant, aggravated by certain activities (urination, sexual relations), etc.


Pelvic pain in women can be caused by the following things:

Dysmenorrhea or menstrual pain
Ovulation - the phase of the release of an egg
Urinary tract infection
Interstitial cystitis
Sexually transmitted disease
Pelvic inflammatory disease
Endometriosis
Irritable bowel syndrome
Urinary tract stones
Ectopic pregnancy, and many more

The doctor needs to examine directly and make further history about the duration, frequency, intensity, description of pelvic pain that you feel. Other symptoms that accompany pelvic pain can also help establish a diagnosis, such as irregular menstruation, bleeding from the vagina outside the menstrual period, abnormal vaginal discharge, fever. Investigations such as ultrasonography, urine analysis, vaginal swab, of course, can help diagnose certain diseases according to the doctor's suspicion of the results of history taking and physical examination.


Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
