Pelvic Pain Q & A

What causes pelvic pain?

Persistent pelvic pain can come from several underlying conditions or disorders that affect the organs in your pelvic floor, including the bladder, kidneys, and bowel. Pelvic pain in women may result from disorders of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and other reproductive organs.

Some common causes of pelvic pain include:

  • Hernia
  • Kidney stones
  • Bladder infection
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Overactive bladder

In women, conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can cause chronic pelvic pain.

Different types of cancer, including kidney cancer, cervical cancer, and bladder cancer, can trigger pelvic pain.

When should I seek treatment for pelvic pain?

If you have sudden and severe pelvic pain, you should seek immediate medical treatment at the nearest emergency room or by calling 911. This type of pain may relate to a rupture in your appendix or another organ.

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Northwest Arkansas Urology Associates for pelvic pain that lasts longer than a few days and isn’t treatable with rest and over-the-counter medications. Pain may feel like a persistent ache, burning, or stabbing sensation in your pelvic area just below your abdomen.

The urology team offers comprehensive diagnostic testing services to identify what’s causing your pain. Services include blood and urine tests to identify infections or inflammation that are contributing to pain.

The team also uses advanced ultrasounds and other imaging tests to evaluate the health and function of the organs in your pelvic floor.

How is pelvic pain treated?
