Depending on its source, pelvic pain can be dull or sharp; it might be constant or off and on (intermittent); and it might be mild, moderate or severe. Pelvic pain can sometimes radiate to your lower back, buttocks or thighs. Sometimes, you might notice pelvic pain only at certain times, such as when you urinate or during sexual activity.
Pelvic pain can occur suddenly, sharply and briefly (acute) or over the long term (chronic). Chronic pelvic pain refers to any constant or intermittent pelvic pain that has been present for six months or more.

How Is the Cause of Pelvic Pain Determined?
To determine what is causing pelvic pain, your OB-GYN will first ask you several questions about your symptoms and past medical problems. We will also perform a physical exam and may offer you tests to determine what is causing your pain. Other tests that may be given include:
- Blood and urine tests
- Pregnancy tests in females of reproductive age
- Vaginal cultures to check for sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and/or chlamydia
- Diagnostic laparoscopy (procedure allowing a direct look at the structures in the pelvis and abdomen)
- Hysteroscopy (procedure to examine the uterus)
- Stool test (checking a stool sample for microscopic blood)
- Ultrasound (test that uses sound waves to provide images of internal organs)
- CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis (scan that uses X-rays and computers to produce an image of a cross-section of the body)
How Is Pelvic Pain Treated?
The treatment of pelvic pain varies depending on the cause, how intense the pain is, and how often the pain occurs. Sometimes, pelvic pain is treated with medications, including antibiotics if necessary. If the pain results from a problem with one of the pelvic organs, the treatment may involve surgery or other procedures.
