Pelvic Pain: Causes and Treatments

Pelvic pain occurs mostly in the lower abdomen area. The pain might be steady, or it might come and go. It can be a sharp and stabbing pain in a specific spot or a dull pain that is spread out. If the pain is severe, it might get in the way of your daily activities.

You might feel pain during your period or It could also happen when you have intercourse.  Pelvic pain can be a sign that there is a problem with one of the organs in your pelvic area, such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, or vagina. Some women have more than one cause of pelvic pain at the same time. You might need to have a lab, imaging, or other medical tests to find the cause of the pain. The treatment will depend on the cause, how bad the pain is, and how often it occurs.
