About Pelvic Pain
Many women routinely experience cramps during their period, but any pelvic pain beyond usual menstrual cramps could be a sign of trouble in your body. The issue is often a symptom of another condition, which could potentially affect your reproductive health, as well as your overall quality of life. When unexplained pelvic pain becomes chronic (lasting longer than six months), it may be time to seek medical treatment. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, our experienced team provides diagnostic testing that helps us uncover what is causing your pain. Contact our office near Norcross, GA to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gerry Sotomayor, and receive the compassionate care you deserve.
Pelvic Pain Causes and Treatments
Female pelvic pain can vary in severity and may occur when you urinate, during or after sexual intercourse, or when you are constipated. It can be the result of a bladder condition, a sexually transmitted disease, sexual trauma, abnormal uterine growth (fibroids), endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or a number of other conditions. A thorough exam and diagnostic testing will be performed to allow Dr. Sotomayor to get to the root cause of your pelvic pain. Depending on your diagnosis, a holistic treatment plan will be provided. Some of our treatment options include pain management medication, dietary supplements, and guidance on recommended lifestyle changes. For patients who require more advanced care, Dr. Sotomayor specializes in performing minimally invasive laser treatments, as well as dilation and curettage, pelvic laparoscopy, and myomectomy.
