Pelvic Pain Treatment

Pelvic pain treatment may vary from each case due to the numerous possible causes of this condition. Therefore in order to identify the appropriate pelvic pain treatment for a patient, the doctor must first find out the underlying condition that causes pelvic pain. This article will discuss some of the procedures that are used in pelvic pain treatment.
Primary dysmenorrhea is one of the leading causes of this condition and the pelvic pain treatment for it is anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. Anti-inflammatory drugs inhibits the body from releasing prostaglandins during menstruations which in turn also stops the uterus from contracting. Hormone therapy is are also employed in pelvic pain treatment when dealing with a condition that is brought upon by hormones and menstruation. Birth control pills are taken by the patient to help manage the hormonal imbalance in the person's body.
Another pelvic pain treatment that is commonly used is surgery. This pelvic pain treatment is prescribed to patients who have a cyst, growth, or tumor that us causing the pain. Some of these particular conditions are uterine fibroid and endemetriosis. The surgical procedures that are utilized for pelvic pain treatment are hysterectomy, myomectomy, and laparoscopy. Hysterectomy is the most invasive of these treatments and it can also have an impact on the woman's capability to become pregnant, thus it is usually not considered as the first selection for treatment.

Medicines are also used for pelvic pain treatment. Antibiotics are used to treat pelvic infection that causes pain. Drugs are also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome, urinary tract infections, and sexually transmitted diseases that also cause chronic pelvic pain.

Pain relievers are also prescribed to patients to be ingested regularly and not just on the occurrence of pain to make the treatment more effective. Sometimes, chronic pelvic pain patients undergo depression as well and that is why tricyclic antidepressant medicine is prescribed to them as well, to help them deal with the pain and depression.
In addition, patients may also try alternative pelvic pain treatment to help them deal with the pain. Some of these treatments are physical therapy, guided imagery, counseling, relaxation, biofeedback, hypnosis, and acupuncture.
