Pelvic Pain Q & A

What causes pelvic pain?

When it comes to anatomy, men and women are largely the same, except when it comes to certain areas, and your pelvis is one such area. As a result, the most common causes of pelvic pain vary considerably between the sexes.

Women

Most of a woman’s key reproductive organs are located in her pelvis, so pain in the area is often tied to:

  • Menstrual cramps
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Reproductive cancers, though these are rare
  • Urinary tract infections

Men and women

Outside of reproductive issues, pelvic pain in either sex can stem from any of the following:

  • Appendicitis
  • Kidney stones
  • Cystitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Hernia

In more serious cases, pelvic pain can be caused by colorectal cancer, which is the third most diagnosed cancer in both men and women in the United States, outside of skin cancers.

When should I see a doctor for pelvic pain?

You know your body best, but there’s hardly ever a good reason to suffer from treatable pain. Pelvic pain can be acute or nagging and persistent. Either way, pain can hijack your entire well-being, so a trip to My Emergency Room 24/7 is always a good idea when it comes to pain of any kind.
