Causes of Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain affects the pelvic area, and sometimes the lower abdomen. It is common in women, but less so in men. It is possible to experience it in the lower back and thighs too. Pelvic pain is usually a symptom to an underlying cause, as one of them.

It comes in two categories; chronic and acute. Acute pain is the more prevalent type. It is severe and lasts for a short while. Surgery tends to make it worse. Chronic pain on the other hand will last longer. The level of pain in choric may be mild, moderate or severe, and keeps increasing. You may feel a sudden intense attack, or an ever present and dull one in the background. They are more pronounced during menstruation, when going for a short call, or when engaged in sexual activity. It usually means you have a urinary system, reproductive system, nervous or lower intestinal tract complication. In women, this normally leads back to a menstrual cycle or reproductive system issue. If it turns acute, there are more reasons to it. It could be a miscarriage. Another cause is an ectopic pregnancy. There is usually cramping and abdominal pain. Pelvic inflammatory disease is also a cause. Ovarian cysts can cause it, where it also leads to pain in the lower back and thighs. Endometriosis can also be attributed, and in it the pain is in the pelvic area only. Ovarian cancer also leads to it, while menstrual cramps are similar, except for where they are accompanied by pain in the lower abdominal area. Uterine fibroids usually cause the pelvic area to have pain, as well as some pressure. Please  view this site  for further details. 

Pelvic pain can also be caused by constipation, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, appendicitis, colon cancer or ulcerative colitis.

In case you feel pelvic pain coming on, it is advisable to go to the doctor's and get checked out. There are many things that can cause pelvic pain, and so you need the doctor to do a few tests to diagnose what the particular cause is. You may be subjected to an MRI, ultra sound imaging, or computed tomography to find out what the problem is, through ruling out possible causes. It is after knowing what the cause was that a doctor can give you medication. In some cases, all you need is an anti-inflammatory drug, an oral contraceptive pill, or an anti-depressant. Others are more complicated, and need you to be schedules for an operation, like a hysterectomy or laparoscopy. Others yet need muscle relaxants, exercises, heat therapy, or nerve blocks.
