After reviewing your symptoms and medical history, Dr. Worley or Dr. Silva will perform an exam to help determine what’s causing your pelvic pain. They may also order blood and urine tests and possibly check for a sexually transmitted infection. Depending on the nature of your pain, you may also benefit from imaging studies including:
These tests can reveal fibroids, cysts, or other problems that may be causing your pain.
Treatment depends on the determined cause of your pain. If you have an STD or urinary tract infection, antibiotics are usually prescribed. Hormone treatment, such as birth control pills, can alleviate pelvic pain associated with ovulation or menstrual pain. For women with pelvic pain due to endometriosis or fibroids, the physicians at Alliance Obstetrics & Gynecology will most likely recommend hormonal therapies or minimally invasive surgery to remove the abnormalities.
