About abdominal or pelvic pressure

Abdominal or pelvic pressure is a common symptom experienced by many people. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, ranging from: 

  • Urinary tract infections 
  • Gastrointestinal issues 
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Adenomyosis
  • Endometriosis
  • Ectopic pregnancy 
  • Pregnancy-related issues 
  • Miscarriage (before 20 weeks) 
  • Intrauterine fetal death
  • Dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps)
  • Mittelschmerz (ovulation pain)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Vulvodynia

The pain may be sharp and stabbing in some cases, while it may be more of a dull ache in others. Depending on the cause, the pain may come and go or be steady. If you are experiencing abdominal or pelvic pressure lasting more than six months, seeking medical advice as soon as possible is essential.

How is pelvic pressure treated?

Treatment options vary depending on the underlying cause but include the following:

  • Medications
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Physical therapy
  • Injections
  • Surgery

How can pelvic pressure be diagnosed?

If you are experiencing abdominal or pelvic pain, seeking medical advice as soon as possible is crucial. Tests and exams that your doctor may use to diagnose the source of the pressure include:

  • Physical exam
  • Laboratory testing
  • Imaging tests such as an ultrasound or CT scan
  • Specialized diagnostic tests such as a laparoscopy

Dr. Bahlani may also ask questions about your symptoms, including when they started and what makes them worse or better. These tests can help diagnose any underlying medical condition that may be causing your pain so we can develop an appropriate treatment plan. 

Is pelvic pressure serious?

It is important to remember that not all abdominal or pelvic pressure is caused by severe conditions – the cause could simply be musculoskeletal. However, getting checked out by a doctor is still essential if the pain persists for more than six months or is severe enough to affect your daily activities.
