What is chronic pelvic pain?2019-07-12T10:15:34+00:00

Chronic pelvic pain is an ongoing, long-term pain that sometimes affects the entire pelvic region, and other times seems limited to a specific area. The pain can be steady, or it may come and go. It may be a dull ache, a severe and sharp pain, or a sensation of pressure deep in your pelvis. You may even experience pelvic pain during a bowel movement or after sitting too long.

While the physicians at UroGyn Specialists of Florida always consider each woman’s unique health condition and tailor treatment to meet each person’s needs, a condition like chronic pelvic pain demands individualized treatment according to the degree of pain and the underlying cause.

Your treatment for chronic pelvic pain may include one or more options:

Hormone treatments: Pelvic pain that coincides with a particular phase of your menstrual cycle may be due to hormonal changes, and is treated with hormonal medications.

Medications: In addition to medications for temporary pain relief, if an infection is found, you may need antibiotics. Tricyclic antidepressants may be considered because they effectively relieve chronic pain even when depression isn’t a concern.

Trigger point injections: If your pelvic pain comes from a specific area, numbing medicine injected into the area can block the pain.

Minimally invasive surgery: To correct an underlying condition like endometriosis.
