Why Pelvic Pain Hurts - Understanding the Impact of Pelvic Pain

Mar 12, 2019


Pelvic pain can be a debilitating condition that significantly affects a person's quality of life. At Phoenix Medical Services, we understand the impact that pelvic pain can have on individuals, and we strive to provide effective solutions to help alleviate your discomfort.

Causes of Pelvic Pain

There are various potential causes of pelvic pain, including:

1. Endometriosis

Endometriosis occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of it. This can lead to severe pelvic pain, especially during menstruation.

2. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

PID is an infection of the female reproductive organs, usually resulting from sexually transmitted infections. It can cause chronic pelvic pain and lead to complications if left untreated.

3. Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis is a chronic bladder condition that can cause pelvic pain, urinary urgency, and frequency. It often requires a comprehensive approach to manage symptoms effectively.

4. Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction refers to muscle imbalances or weakness in the pelvic floor muscles. This can lead to pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, and other related symptoms.

5. Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus. They can cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and other discomforting symptoms.
