Managing chronic pelvic pain can be a daily challenge, while acute and sudden pelvic pain may indicate a severe illness, injury, or infection. It’s crucial to take any pelvic pain you’re experiencing seriously and seek professional medical attention.
How do I know if my pelvic pain is serious?
Pelvic pain can be classified as either acute or chronic. Acute pelvic pain arises suddenly and is typically severe, whereas chronic pelvic pain lasts for over three months and can be constant or intermittent. Depending on the type of pain you’re experiencing, the signs of serious pelvic pain can vary. Chronic pelvic pain is generally serious to some degree, whereas acute pelvic pain may either be a temporary problem that poses no significant risk or a sign of a severe underlying condition.
Here are some signs that your pelvic pain may be serious:
- Presence of blood in your urine or stool
- Feeling faint, light-headed, or experiencing low blood pressure
- Pelvic pain accompanied by a fever
- Pain in the lower right of your pelvis behind your belly button that appears to be moving
- Pelvic pain during pregnancy
- Feeling of pressure or heaviness deep within the pelvis
- Persistent, severe pain that significantly disrupts your daily life or gets worse over time
- Stabbing pain
- Sudden and severe pain with accompanying symptoms like diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, agitation, or excessive sweating
- Vaginal bleeding after menopause
What are the potential causes of pelvic pain?
Pelvic pain can stem from a wide range of conditions, including gynecological disorders, acute illnesses or infections, digestive tract disorders, and more. Some possible causes of pelvic pain include:
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Tumors or abscesses in the pelvis or digestive tract
- Colon cancer
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Endometrial polyps
- Interstitial cystitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea)
- Pelvic congestion syndrome
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
- Penile pain syndrome
- Pudendal neuralgia
- Ruptured fallopian tube
- Ruptured or twisted ovarian cyst
- Separation of the pelvic bones after childbirth
- Strained pelvic muscles
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as cystitis or urethritis
- Uterine fibroids causing cramps or excessive bleeding
While some of these conditions may require emergency medical attention, at Ramos Center, we offer treatment for chronic pelvic pain disorders.
