Pelvic pain is felt below your bellybutton. It may come on suddenly and severely, or could be mild and last for months. Sudden pelvic pain can be the sign of another condition; ovarian cysts, a UTI, constipation, fibroids, appendicitis etc.
The most common causes of chronic pelvic pain are:
chronic pelvic inflammatory disease – a bacterial infection of the womb, fallopian tubes or ovaries, which often follows a chlamydia or gonorrhoea infection and needs immediate treatment with antibiotics
IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) – a common long-term condition of the digestive system that can cause stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation
