Over the course of their lives, many women can experience varying levels of pelvic pain. Most pain from this area of the body can be attributed to reproductive organs, but sometimes pelvic pain can be a symptom of another condition. Because pelvic pain can be the symptom of a wide range of diagnoses, PGOMG recommends that patients schedule an appointment to be evaluated with our specialists so we can evaluate the source and get you back to a pain free life.
Chronic pelvic pain is known to be a common symptom of the following conditions:
- Ovarian Cysts
- Uterine Fibroids
Acute pelvic pain can be associated with:
- Ruptured or twisted ovarian cyst
- Complications of early pregnancy including miscarriage and
- Ectopic pregnancy (embryo implants outside of the uterus)
Cystocele most often occurs after a woman has given birth vaginally. Sometimes, when a woman gives birth, the supportive tissues between a women’s bladder and her vaginal wall weakens, and this weakening can cause tears. The weakening and/or tearing, then causes a hernia, which is a protrusion of the bladder into the vagina. The symptoms of Cystocele include:
- Incomplete emptying of the bladder
- Bladder infection(s)
- A protrusion from the vaginal opening
- Urinary incontinence
In order to diagnose a cystocele, PGOMG providers will need to perform a pelvic exam. If there is incontinence, other tests may be indicated. If it is determine that a patient has a cystocele, PGOMG providers will recommend either surgical or nonsurgical treatment options.
Ovarian cysts are fluid filled collections that are found either in or on a women’s ovary. Ovarian cysts are very common, and come in many varieties: functional (ovulatory) and abnormal. Abnormal cysts or, nonfunctional cysts are caused by abnormal cell growth and may be benign or cancerous. If a cyst is larger than 5 cm it is also at risk of “torsing” (twisting) and may need to be removed. If PGOMG specialists determine that the cyst is in any way harmful, a treatment plan will be discussed. All of these surgeries can be minimally invasive and out patient. The most common symptom of an ovarian cyst is pain in the lower abdomen.
