Common Causes of Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus, causing pain and inflammation.
  • Ovarian cysts: Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop on the ovaries, and can cause pain and discomfort if they become large or rupture.
  • Gynecological conditions: Other gynecological conditions such as fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, and ovarian cancer can also cause pelvic pain in young women.

Common Symptoms of Pelvic Pain

The symptoms of pelvic pain can vary depending on the underlying cause. Common symptoms of pelvic pain in young women include:

  • Pain in the pelvic region: Pelvic pain can be sharp or dull, and may be constant or intermittent.
    Pain during intercourse: Pain during intercourse can be a sign of pelvic floor dysfunction or endometriosis.
