Pelvic pain is discomfort in the lower abdomen and is a common complaint. It is separate from vaginal pain or discomfort. Since the pelvic cavity contains a number of organs, including the intestine and bladder, pain in your pelvis could indicate any number of medical conditions. Pelvic pain could also be an indication of a disease or infection in the female’s reproduction organs; these include the cervix, the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes. A gynecologist is educated in a woman’s pelvic cavity and is capable of diagnosing the cause of pelvic pain or discomfort.
