I have pelvic pain went to ER for severe pelvic pain dr said ovarian cyst ruptured and this has been two days and I still have severe pelvic pain could there be other problems?

The: The pain is likely due to free fluid in your stomach/pelvis that collected after the cyst ruptured. This can be very painful, and often requires strong pain medications until the fluif starts to be reabsorbed. If your pain has not subsided by now, see your doctor for a follow up. All the best.

Severe pelvic pain. No insurance, made several er trips, ob won't do anything. Suggestions?

Forget the ER: Forget the ER and find a county or academic hospital clinic that offers care on a sliding scale or free for a more extensive workup. If you have a job and low income the Obamacare program is made just for you if you can sign up for insurance going to the government web site and finding subsidies for helping to pay for your plan.

"Severe" sounds bad: A woman with new "severe pelvic pain" should call her primary doctor or Ob-Gyn doctor right away. Possible causes include infection, obstruction, twisted ovary, cyst or tumor problem, pregnancy problem, etc. If she has no personal doctor, she has to go where she will be examined. Usually, that would be the Emergency Room. One can call 911 for an ambulance if there is no safe way to get to the E.R.

I have a question regarding my recent diagnosis of endometriosis. If after a laparoscopy to remove the lesions, should I still have severe pelvic pain?

The pelvic pain: Will improve or resolve after surgery. Besides there are meds u can take- antiinflammatory, muscle relaxers and narcotics, that would ease ur pain. So don't worry, be happy!

Pelvic pain: Given that there is no gyn issues you would also want to see a urologist to ensure there is no urological issue. If this comes back okay then seek the input of a pain specialist.

For almost two years, I've had severe pelvic pain with tenderness and bloating in my lower left side, my dr ignores it, what could be going on?

For almost two years, I've had severe pelvic pain with tenderness and bloating in my lower left side, my dr ignores it, what could be going on?

Don't ignore it: Don't know your gender, age. Cou;ld be spasm, irritable bowel but could be other stuff, like gyn issues, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, hernia, adhesions from prior surgery or inflammatory diseases. Gyn exam, labs, imaging studies, e.g. Abdominal/pelvic sono, maybe ct, colonoscopy may be of use. Get it checked.

I have had severe pelvic pain for 4 months now, what could be causing this?

I have had severe pelvic pain for 4 months now, what could be causing this?

Get checked..: It is difficult to tell with just your question...Specific location, timing/relation to activities etc. Walking/sleeping/during relation etc...Can help tease out cause. Infection such as pelvic infllammatory disease can certainly do so, as well as ovarian cysts, salpingitis (infection of your tubes) etc. Since it has been 4 months, I would consult doc. Likely need exam and ultrasound. Good luck.
