Pelvic pain is a symptom of an injury or disease and can be present in both men and women (although it is most commonly prevalent in females). The pain can be caused by a variety of reasons including injury or medical conditions.
Some medical conditions that are associated with pelvic pain include urinary tract infection (UTI), endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, appendicitis, and kidney stones. Associated symptoms include vaginal bleeding or spotting, bloating or gas, hip pain, pain during sex, constipation or diarrhea, and menstrual pain. Treatment may involve addressing the underlying condition, physical therapy, or medication.
Pelvic pain may be the sign of something more serious. If you or a loved one is experiencing persistent pain, seek help at Schneck Medical Center.
