-- Question: For What Kinds Of Pelvic Pain Should I Seek Medical Attention?
Answer: Pelvic pain is very difficult to diagnose and unfortunately, many patients will never have a diagnosis. The most common cause of pelvic pain is menstrual pain, but there are some other causes. These include pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and other infections of the pelvis.
Most pelvic pain is mild and can be treated very easily with a simple pain killer such as Tylenol. However, if this doesn't work, see your doctor.
In addition, there are some very serious causes of pelvic pain and these include ectopic pregnancy. So if you think you could be pregnant and have severe pain in the pelvis, go to an emergency room immediately.
