Too many women suffer in silence with pelvic pain. Sometimes the pain is occasional and mild. Sometimes it can affect your day-to-day life. It can put you in a bad mood and make you feel like you are going crazy at times.

There are many different potential causes of pelvic pain. It can involve the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, urinary system, intestines, pelvic floor, hernias, vagina, scar tissue, infections, and inflammatory diseases such as endometriosis.

If you are suffering from pelvic pain, seek help. Since there are many potential causes, sometimes it can take a full workup, imaging test, lab test, multiple appointments, and occasionally surgery to find the cause. But the goal is pain relief and/or cure.

Seek help. Start knocking on doors and don’t stop until you have knocked on the right door for you!

Questions are welcomed.
