What Causes Pelvic Pain?

We know that in most cases we can find the cause for pelvic pain and treat it successfully. This includes pain associated with menstrual periods, ovulation, bladder and bowel function, and with intercourse.

Common causes of pain include endometriosis, adenomyosis (endometriosis within the muscle wall of the uterus), pelvic infection, adhesions (scar tissue), ovarian cysts or tumors, and tumors or growths of the uterus. Sometimes conditions of the bowel tract may cause pain, such as irritable bowel syndrome, colitis or inflammatory bowel disease, cronic appendicitis, gallbladder disease or diverticulitis. Urinary tract infection, stones of the urinary tract, and interstitial cystitis may cause abdominal pain, such as back or muscle disorders which excite pain-sensing nerves around the abdomen and pelvis.

At the Advanced Fertility Institute, we specialize in accurately defining the cause of pelvic pain and applying the most effective treatments. We utilize minimally invasive techniques, including laser laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to cure the problem without damaging any normal tissue.
