Diagnosing and Treating Pelvic Pain Online

Oftentimes, pelvic pain refers to the pain in a woman’s internal reproductive organs, like the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, or vagina. Women may feel this pain during their period. Some female-specific pelvic pain causes include:

  • Pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Ovulation
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis

Women can also experience pelvic pain unrelated to the reproductive organs. Possible causes of pelvic pain when unrelated to the reproductive organs, include:

  • Appendicitis
  • Bladder disorders
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Kidney infections
  • Intestinal disorders
  • Hernias

During a video consult on Amwell your doctor will ask you a series of targeted questions to determine if your symptoms point to pelvic pain. Then your provider will proceed to determine the best treatment plan for you. Your provider may recommend in-person examination by an in-person provider if this is needed. Your treatment plan is based on the duration and severity of your symptoms and your medical history.

Once a diagnosis has been made, your doctor will go over the risks and benefits of the various treatment plans. Treatment for pelvic pain is different depending on the cause and severity.

Options for treatment of pelvic pain may include:

  • Pain medication
  • Hormonal treatment
  • Physical therapy
