Almost 20% of women experience pelvic pain during their childbearing years; that’s roughly one in six women living with minor to chronic pain in their lower abdomen. Life with routine pain is not normal and you do not need to suffer alone. Let Garnet Health doctors provide you with the support you need to take back your pain-free life. Our skilled, experienced OB/GYN team is available to provide healing support and personalized pelvic pain treatment to women in the Orange and Sullivan County, NY, area. 

Pelvic pain affects the lowest part of your abdomen and can develop for various reasons. While this pain varies in its severity and causes, any level of abdominal or pelvic pain can interfere with your daily routine. It can even be a sign that something is wrong, making it important to educate yourself and never ignore symptoms. Be sure to take charge of your health, and don’t delay needed care.

Pelvic Pain Symptoms, Causes & Treatment

Symptoms

Pelvic pain can range from mild to chronic, taking the form of:

  • Localized pain in your abdomen
  • Cramping
  • Sudden abdominal pain
  • Slowly developing pain
  • Pain across your entire abdomen
  • Pain aggravated by movement or during an exam

Causes

Mild pelvic pain in women is often caused by:

  • Period pain
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Ovulation
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Uterine fibroids

Chronic pelvic pain in women could be a symptom of a larger condition caused by: 

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Appendicitis
  • Urinary stones
  • Tumor
  • Ovarian or interstitial cysts

Treatment

Most mild cases of pelvic pain don’t require a physician’s treatment. Instead, the pain can usually be managed with:

  • Over-the-counter pain medications, like ibuprofen
  • At-home therapies, like a warm bath or heating pad
  • Holistic exercise, like yoga

Chronic pelvic pain or any new, severe abdominal pain should be professionally evaluated, perhaps as part of a more in-depth treatment plan. At Garnet Health, our OB/GYN team and women’s health specialists are available to help you access treatment and support for mild and chronic pelvic pain. We prioritize a compassionate approach to women's health services, working together, and with you, to provide support, easily understood care plans and personalized treatments in a healing, warm environment.
