What Pelvic Pain Is And Why You Shouldn’t Ignore It

Save Share

Pain below your belly button is called pelvic pain and it might mean that one of the organs located in the pelvic area is not OK. This pain might show up all of a sudden, be sharp, mild or dull, or last for a few months. Pelvic pain can be associated with diseases of the reproductive organs, gastrointestinal tract, skeletal or urinary systems, or pelvic pain syndrome. Due to the complex anatomy of the female reproductive tract (FRT), pelvic pain can result from a variety of conditions affecting the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, etc. 

Because of this, you might need to be examined by different experts; for example, your gynecologist might recommend a visit to a gastroenterologist to find the specific reason for your pain.  

Don’t ignore your pelvic pain if it’s acute or long-term. See your doctor as soon as possible to find out the reason for the pain. We care about your health and so should you.
