Maybe infection: Could be a urinary tract infection. Need a urinalysis to diagnose for sure. This is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics. An exam may also be helpful. Could be done by primary care or gynecologist. Hope this helps!

A 21-year-old member asked:
I had a hysterectomy and removal of my tubes and ovaries. However, two years later, I had a very painful area in my pelvis and was told that I had endometriosis. Is this possible?

Endo post Hyst: Removal of the uterus tubes and ovaries is not curative for endometriosis if the endometriosis was not removed at the time of surgery. Even then microscopic foci of endometriosis could regenerate down the road and cause pain. Now i would like to remind you that there are other conditions that may cause pain not related to endometriosis, such as interstitial cystitis, pelvic floor spasms.

What might cause pain in the thigh that seems to move around in buttocks and groin if the doctor suggested an ultrasound and venogram?

Hip Joint and spine: The pain in the anatomical region you have mentioned could be from the hip joint, spine, and soft tissue infection. Venous blood clots can result in pain and swelling in the calf and thigh but not in the buttocks. A good history and physical exam will usually identify the system involved.
