Chronic Pelvic Pain Q & A

What are common causes of chronic pelvic pain?

Chronic pelvic pain is often a complex issue that can have several different causes. A single disorder or multiple disorders can cause chronic pelvic pain. Among the most common causes are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Vaginitis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Recurrent yeast or bacterial infections
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Chronic urinary infections

When should I see a doctor?

Pelvic pain should always be evaluated by a board-certified gynecologist. Diagnosis can require undergoing a physical examination and extensive testing.

Here are some symptoms often associated with chronic pelvic pain:

  • Severe and steady pain
  • Intermittent pain
  • Aching
  • Cramping
  • Pressure deep in your pelvis
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain during a bowel movement or urinating
  • Pain when you remain seated for a long time

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and they seem to be getting worse, see a doctor right away.

How does Dr. Lipton diagnose chronic pelvic pain?

The first step is making an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Lipton begins by discussing your symptoms and taking a complete medical history and conducting a thorough pelvic exam. He may also

perform a sonohysterogram — an ultrasound using a saline solution — to deliver a highly-detailed image of your uterus. Performed in his office, this ultrasound helps Dr. Lipton figure out what’s causing your chronic pelvic pain so he can develop the right treatment plan for you.

Other test performed may include a blood count, pregnancy test, and testing for STDs or a urinary tract infection.

How does Dr. Lipton treat chronic pelvic pain?

Depending on what testing reveals, Dr. Lipton might suggest pain relievers, antibiotics, hormonal treatments, or surgery.

An accurate diagnosis is essential. According to the International Pelvic Pain Society, 61% of women suffering from chronic pelvic don't know what is causing it. Only with the right diagnosis, can you receive effective treatment and relief
