Unlike diabetes and hypertension, pelvic pain does not have direct reasons, or at least this is what it was like in the past. Nowadays people are paying more attention to this problem that can waste many women’s time and energy. So, what exactly are the common reasons of pelvic pains?
1- PFTM which is commonly known as vaginismus is one of the common but usually unknown reasons of pelvic pain. Common symptoms of this illness are feeling discomfort in the pelvis with some burning and itching in the vagina or urethra. The doctor will mostly tell you to do certain exercises to align your pelvic.
2- Endometriosis is another reason for pelvic pain. It is a chronic disease that happens when the tissue that lines the inside the uterus grows outside the uterus. It causes pain in pelvic along with menstrual cramps. It is commonly treated with birth control pills and ibuprofen.
3- Pelvic vein incompetence is another reason for pelvic pain. It happens when blood pools because the valves in veins become weak and don’t close properly. The pain grows worse with time and you feel better with drinking something hot or using heating blankets or lying down. It is treated by applying progestin hormone.
4- Chronic vulvar pain (a.k.a vulvodynia) is one of the causes of pelvic pain. IT is said – but not confirmed – that the reason of vulvodynia is former yeast infections, or damaged nerves in that area. It is also accompanied by feeling some burning in the vulvar first, then in the butt and thighs if neglected. It is treated with a simple surgery.
5- Painful bladder symptom is another cause of pelvic pain. It is a chronic inflammatory condition of the submucosal and muscular layers of the bladder. It is not common but it is very painful, especially when the bladder is full. So when you notice that you go to the bathroom too many times that your life is crippled then you should know that you have it. It is treated by instilling antiseizure medications and antidepressants directly into the bladder.
Pelvic pain is not a matter that can be taken lightly. As soon as you feel any discomfort in your pelvic consult a doctor immediately.
