Chronic Pelvic Pain

 

Chronic pelvic pain is related to a number of internal and reproductive conditions or it can be a condition in itself. Women are more likely than men to suffer from chronic pelvic pain. Some of the conditions which can cause pelvic pain include:

  • Cystitis

  • Fibroids

  • Ovulation

  • Adhesions

  • Appendicitis

  • Endometriosis

  • Menstrual pains

  • Rupture of Cysts

  • Ectopic Pregnancy

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

What are the causes of chronic pelvic pain?

How is abdominal and pelvic pain diagnosed?

Diagnosing chronic pelvic pain is often challenging because of the variety of potential conditions. Dr. Goldberg will begin diagnosis with a patient history and a thorough examination, including a pelvic exam. She may order further screening and testing including blood tests, ultrasound or CT scans, or hysteroscopy to look inside the uterus. If a gastrointestinal tract problem is suspected, referral can be made to a doctor who can perform the appropriate testing.

How is chronic pelvic pain treated?

The first thing that Dr. Goldberg will need to do is to determine the cause of the pain. When the responsible condition is diagnosed, she will create a treatment plan to address that issue. Whatever the condition, Dr. Goldberg will provide you with the best possible treatment to address your condition and discomfort. She will provide you with thorough examinations and help you to understand your condition and answer any questions.
