Causes of Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain is defined as pain in the area of the lower abdomen and pelvis that lasts six months or longer. This condition is complex because the pain may be caused by many different medical problems, and many women usually have more than one of these medical problems. Some medical conditions that are common in women with chronic pelvic pain include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic infection
  • Pelvic adhesions or scarring from surgery
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Sacroiliitis/Lower back pain
  • Abdominal muscle pain
  • Hernia
  • Fibromyalgia

The Henry Ford West Bloomfield Pelvic Pain Clinic focuses on a non-surgical philosophy of care for most of our patients. However, when surgery is an appropriate option, patients can feel confident that our experts in minimally invasive surgery offer the most advanced techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques.

Our Pelvic Pain Center team also partners with specialists at the Henry Ford Pain Center and the Henry Ford Center for Integrative Medicine to provide women with chronic pelvic pain additional pain-relief and healing therapies when needed.
