Pelvic Pain Q & A

What causes pelvic pain?

Answering that question is the first step toward finding relief from your pain. A wide range of conditions cause pelvic pain, including:

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the interior of your uterus (called your endometrium) grows outside your uterus. When your body tries to shed this lining during your menstrual cycle, the tissue has nowhere to go. 

This not only causes pain in your body, but it can also cause issues with your ability to get pregnant. Fortunately, Albany Obstetrics & Gynecology offers several treatments to minimize your pain and protect your fertility. 

Pelvic floor dysfunction

The muscles that support your pelvic floor can fail to give your body the support it needs. On top of pelvic pain, dysfunction in the muscles and ligaments of your pelvic floor can cause lower back pain, constipation, and pain during sex. Fortunately, reversing these issues simply requires getting your pelvic floor ample support, which can often be achieved through muscular retraining. 

Ovarian cysts

Although cysts on your ovaries are common and often don’t cause any symptoms, some cysts can leave you feeling bloated and in pain. If treatment is required for your cyst and medication isn’t effective, Albany Obstetrics & Gynecology offers leading-edge, minimally invasive robotic surgery to remove the cyst. 

Uterine fibroids

Like cysts on your ovaries, fibroids on your uterus are common and often symptomless. When they do cause problems, uterine fibroids often result in menstrual pain, heavy bleeding, backaches, and more. Again, Albany Obstetrics & Gynecology offers robotic surgery to remove these unwelcome additions to your reproductive system. 

Hormonal imbalances and disorders

Hormonal changes or disorders can leave you with pelvic pain. Whether you’re dealing with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or postmenopausal vaginal dryness, Albany Obstetrics & Gynecology is here to help you balance your hormones and get pain relief.
