Causes of Chronic Pelvic Pain

There are several reason why one may suffer from a chronic pelvic pain.

  • The lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. The lining that is outside responds to hormones hence when menstruation begins the blood has no area to shed off, it is painful due to the trapped blood and adhesions occur.
  • Musculoskeletal problems. Pelvic pain may also be caused by musculoskeletal problems such as pelvic floor muscle tension, pubis symphsis inflammation and fibromyalgia.
  • Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. Sexually transmitted infections lead to scarring of the organs in the pelvis that is painful.
  • Ovarian remnant. After surgery when removing the reproductive organs, some ovary parts may be left causing accumulation of cysts that is painful.
  • Uterine growths that are non-cancerous that creates pelvic pressure. When blood supply to the area is compromised, there is pain in the area.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome. Diarrhea, constipation and bloating are signs of irritable bowel syndrome which cause pelvic pain.
  • Interstitial cystitis. The need to urinate frequently and painful bladder leads to pelvic pain each time the bladder fills.
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome. Veins that are varicose in the uterus and ovary can cause congestion, hence creating pain.
  • Psychological factors. Stress, depression and sexual abuse in the past can lead to pelvic pain.
