Pelvic pain is a common health problem. It can cause discomfort and pain in your lower abdomen, pelvis and/or lower back. Pelvic pain may be caused by any number of medical conditions, including urinary tract infections (UTIs), endometriosis or ovarian cysts. However, there are several things you can do to manage pelvic pain so that you feel better sooner rather than later:

Pelvic pain can result from a number of different medical conditions.

Pelvic pain can result from a number of different medical conditions.

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) and endometriosis are two of the most common causes of pelvic pain, but there are other less common causes as well.
  • Ovarian cysts can also cause pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis and may present with symptoms such as:
  • Painful periods
  • Lower backache or hip-joint pain during exercise or sexual activity
  • Tension myalgia, which is muscle spasms in your inner thigh muscles that can cause numbness and tingling sensations around your legs

Pelvic pain may be due to a urinary tract infection, endometriosis or ovarian cysts.

  • Urinary tract infections are common, with about 20 million cases of UTIs reported each year in the United States. The symptoms include:
  • Pain when you pee or have to pee
  • A burning sensation while urinating or after urinating
  • A strong urge to go to the bathroom (known as urgency) on a regular basis

A common cause of pelvic pain is tension myalgia.

  • What is tension myalgia?

Tension myalgia is a condition that causes pain in your muscles, tendons and ligaments. It’s most common in women who are pregnant and people who have been exercising. The pain can be mild to severe, but it often goes away after several weeks or months.

  • How do you know if you have it?

You may notice that there’s a specific point on the body where you feel the worst pain–like when trying to sit up from lying down or standing up from sitting down (you may also feel this area more than other places). If this is what happens for you, then it’s likely that tension myalgia has caused some sort of damage to your muscles or tendons within those areas; however, there are other causes as well! For example: if someone says they’re experiencing ribcage pains while they’re eating dinner together; they could simply be having a strong feeling of “nausea” caused by overeating because they’re nervous about their food tasting bad… but instead of just swallowing those feelings whole without expressing them properly–which would make sense considering how much stress we put ourselves under nowadays… let alone spending hours worrying about whether our meal will taste right enough – which leads us right back into another cycle of stressors leading towards even more negative outcomes… like maybe getting fat because I’m stressed out all day long every week?

If you have chronic pelvic pain, you may need surgery.

If you have chronic pelvic pain, surgery may be the only way to solve your problem. However, this is not always successful and can cause more pain in some cases. Surgery can also be costly and does not always fix the problem completely.

If you are considering surgery for chronic pelvic pain:

  • Talk with your doctor about all of your options before making any decisions about treatment options or procedures that are available at his/her office or hospital facility where he/she practices medicine (e.g., physical therapy).

Pelvic floor muscle training can help reduce your symptoms.

Pelvic floor muscle training is a type of exercise that can help reduce your symptoms. It’s important to do these exercises correctly and safely, so read on for more information.

Pelvic floor muscles are all the muscles in your pelvic region (pelvis) and they play an important role in urination, bowel elimination and sexual function. In fact, many people refer to them as “the powerhouse” because they help support your bladder, uterus and rectum during normal activities such as walking or running around while carrying groceries or children on their backs!

The goal of pelvic floor muscle training exercises is to strengthen these muscles so they become stronger than what you have now–and then maintain that level of strength over time without any effort required from yourself whatsoever!

A physician can prescribe medication to help with your pain and discomfort.

If you have pelvic pain, your doctor can prescribe medication to help with your pain and discomfort. These medications are called analgesics, which means they help reduce or manage the sensation of physical pain.

There are many different types of analgesics that can be used to treat vaginal or pelvic floor disorders such as:

  • Analgesics (Pain Relievers) – These medications include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), acetaminophen/paracetamol combinations, codeine and tramadol (a synthetic opiate). Acetaminophen is found in Tylenol®, an over-the-counter fever reducer; paracetamol is sold under brand names such as Panadol and Nurofen Plus; codeine is the active ingredient in Extra Strength Tylenol® Capsules; tramadol comes in tablet form and may also be available in liquid form if prescribed by a doctor who specializes in treating chronic pain conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia

Pelvic pain can be caused by more than one thing, but there are ways to manage it in all cases

It is important to see a doctor to get the full picture of what is causing your pelvic pain. If you have severe pain, an urgent visit may be necessary. However, if it’s just a mild case of discomfort and you’re not sure whether or not something serious has happened (like damage to nerves), then it can help to wait until you’ve had time for your symptoms to settle before seeking professional assistance.

If it turns out that there is no issue with any organs in the pelvis area–such as kidney stones or gallstones–it’s possible that a simple cause exists under all that pain: muscle tension/tightness in muscles around the hip joints could be causing them ache like crazy! This type of muscular spasm might even cause nerve irritation or inflammation which would lead us back again into our original question: What causes pelvic pain?


Pelvic pain is something that affects millions of women around the world, and there are many different causes of this condition. While some people are able to manage their symptoms on their own, others may require more help from their doctors or other healthcare providers.
