Pelvic pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, including:
- Sexually transmitted infections
- Uterine fibroids
- Ovarian cysts
An expert gynecologist at University of Miami Health can help you find the cause of your pelvic pain. Together, you can decide which treatments are right to help your condition and relieve pain.
During your routine pelvic exam, your gynecologist might be able to feel the causes of pelvic pain, such as cysts or fibroids. They may also conduct testing for sexually transmitted infections.
A Pap smear can help identify abnormal cells or signs of sexually transmitted infections.
Your gynecologist can use a pelvic ultrasound to check for problems in your uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes that may cause pain.
If you have pelvic pain and excessive bleeding during your period, your doctor may use blood tests to check for hormonal causes.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRIs are radiation-free tests that can show cysts or fibroids in your pelvis.
During this test, your doctor inserts a specialized, lighted camera into your uterus to look for causes of pelvic pain.
