For women suffering from pelvic pain, it's easy to suffer in silence, assuming that this pain is a natural part of the childbirth and aging processes. Yet when pelvic pain lasts for 6 months or more, it most likely has an underlying cause that can and should be treated. Women with chronic pelvic pain should see Dr. Samuel Bharksuwan at Pinecroft OBGYN in Spring, Texas, and the Houston metro area. Dr. Bharksuwan provides diagnostic and treatment services that will bring true relief.
Occasional pelvic pain isn't a cause for concern, but women who have consistent pain for 6 or more months should seek treatment. This is true whether the pain's constant, cyclical, or connected to a particular activity.
A number of conditions can cause chronic pelvic pain. Some of these conditions include:

This typically causes incontinence, but it can also cause pelvic pain, especially pain in the vagina or rectum. Childbirth causing damage to the pelvic floor is the most common cause of this particular disorder, but it can occur in women of all ages.
When a woman comes to Pinecroft OBGYN to talk to Dr. Bharksuwan about pelvic pain, he'll begin with a thorough medical history, physical exam, and pelvic exam. If this doesn't pinpoint a cause, he may use imaging tests to see inside the structures of the pelvis.
Because chronic pelvic pain has quite a large number of potential causes, it has a large number of treatments as well. Once the cause is found, the treatment focuses on that particular cause. Some pain-relief measures can also help, and these include:
