Pelvic Pain

What is pelvic pain?

Pain can affect many aspects of a woman’s life, especially when it is a constant factor. Pelvic pain is specifically pain in the abdominal and pelvic area of a woman’s body. Women suffering from pelvic pain often experience pain and discomfort during sex, during/before/after their period or while urinating, as well as pressure in the abdomen, bloating, pain during bowl movements, rectal bleeding or spotting during her period.

How can pelvic pain affect one’s life?

The effect pelvic pain can have on a woman’s life is significant. One of the main complaints is painful sex which can impact intimacy with one’s partner. Even infertility can be a symptom which can make starting a family impossible.

Painful periods, rectal bleeding and spotting can make periods unbearable for women. Even using the restroom can be a painful and embarrassing experience for women who have pelvic pain. Dr. Guerette understands that these symptoms not only affect a woman physically, but also emotionally and psychologically.
