Major Causes of Pelvic Pain:


These are non-cancerous growths in the uterus muscle. Fibroids exert pressure on the pelvis when they increase in size or multiply in number. These growths contain estrogen receptors, which make them increase during menstruation significantly.

Endometriosis or adenomyosis:

When endometrium (uterine lining tissue) grows outside the uterus (Endometriosis) or into the uterine muscular wall (Adenomyosis), this can result in cramps and heavy bleeding.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID):

Sexually transmitted infections such as herpes, gonorrhea, and chlamydia can cause severe bacterial infection in the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. The infection can make you experience pain during sex and urination. Failure to seek treatment can result in scar tissue formation, making it impossible for you to conceive.

Urinary tract infection (UTI):

Urinary tract infection can cause pain and a burning sensation in the pelvis region. Causes of UTI include diabetes, multiple sclerosis, genetics, and spinal cord injury, among others. It would help if you visited your gynecologist to help avoid the infection from spreading to the kidney.

Ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage:

If a fertilized egg is implanted outside the womb, for instance, in the fallopian tubes, this can be life-threatening. Embryo development can be so painful. Also, if you lose a pregnancy before the 20th week, this can cause cramps and pain in the pelvis region

Ovarian cysts:

Your ovaries contain sacs that are filled with fluid. These sacs dissolve naturally, and their rapture can cause pelvic pain.
