Are you ready to live a pain-free life? Dr. Sonia Bahlani can help you with:
Vulvodynia is chronic pain around the opening of the vagina that has no identifiable cause. Symptoms may include burning, swelling, pain during sex and more.
Endometriosis occurs when uterine cells grow outside of the uterus on other organs, such as the ovaries or bladder. Symptoms may include extremely painful periods, pain during or after sex, infertility and more.
Bladder pain/interstitial cystitis
This condition refers to an inflamed bladder with symptoms similar to a urinary tract infection, but with no infection present. Symptoms may include pressure and pain in the abdomen, prolonged urinary tract symptoms, and pain during sex.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Typically caused by an untreated sexually transmitted infection, pelvic inflammatory disease is an infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. Symptoms may include irregular periods, pain during urination, fatigue, or pelvic tenderness.
These non-cancerous tumors can grow in and on the uterus, causing abdominal pain, pressure, constipation and heavy periods. Many people with uterine fibroids won’t notice any symptoms at all.
Physical pain isn’t always caused by a physical source. Many people, particularly those who have suffered sexual assault or abuse, experience pelvic pain in response to emotional distress. Symptoms may include depression, anxiety, stress, and more.
