Help! My Lady Parts Hurt!

Gynecology | Columbus Women's Care | Columbus OHAs a woman, you know that occasional cramps are part of the natural menstrual cycle, but pelvic pain can indicate other concerns if the problem is excessive either in severity or frequency. Columbus Women’s Health can help you understand why you are having pelvic pain, and we provide treatments to alleviate your symptoms.

What Causes Pelvic Pain?

Several medical conditions cause pain in the pelvic region of a woman’s body. One of the first steps in diagnosing the problem is determining if the pain is in the pelvic area or vaginal area. You can feel pelvic pain in the area just above your pubic region. It typically does not involve pain during intercourse or while urinating. Once we determine that you are experiencing pelvic pain, we may run tests to determine if the issue is related to the reproductive system, bowel or urinary tract.

Diagnosing Pelvic Pain

In order to examine the internal tissues of the uterus and vaginal channel, Columbus Women’s Center will perform a pelvic exam. Based on the findings, we may recommend additional tests, such as:

  • Colonoscopy to examine the colon (the lower section of the intestines)
  • Laparoscopy to examine the tissues and organs of the pelvic region
  • Sigmoidoscopy examine the colon and rectum
  • Ultrasound examine internal organs
  • Cystoscopy to examine the bladder and urethra

These tests are recommended to evaluate tissues that cannot be examined during a pelvic exam.

Treatments for Pelvic Pain

Most conditions that cause pelvic pain can be managed without extensive treatment. We begin with the most conservative treatment, such as dietary and lifestyle changes. We may recommend that you exercise more, avoid certain foods, increase intake of micronutrients and improve your posture. If these approaches do not help, we may recommend physical therapy and medications. Advanced cases, typically those that involve abnormal growths, anatomical irregularities, and damaged tissues may require surgery.
