Causes of Lower Abdomen Pain
Also, pelvis pain may occur due to the digestive tract diseases (inflammation of the intestines, hernia, etc), urinary tract diseases (acute or chronic kidney inflammation, stones or sand, cysts and tumors) and loco-motor system disorders. Lower abdominal pain may also be caused by depression and hypochondria.
Pain may be caused by diverticulosis. In this case, pain is usually in the form of cramps, especially after meals or effort, which spontaneously calm and then re-occur.
Pain in the lower abdomen may be the result of reflective pain from the spine and sometimes the hips.
Although relatively rare, pelvic pain may occur due to aortic aneurysm (enlargement of lower part or the whole abdominal aorta).
The doctor should determine type of pain on the basis of careful examination and a number of laboratory findings. Women with acute pain in the pelvic area are often subjected to the sudden surgical removing of some abdominal change (appendicitis, cysts or stones in the ureter). The doctor will decide with precise tests if surgery is needed.
The most common causes of pain in the pelvis are sexual diseases such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, unprotected sexual intercourse, abortion and the use of intrauterine cartridges.
In the case that the pain is caused by bacteria, the infection can be successfully cured with antibiotics, if it is discovered on time.
Lower Abdomen Pain and Infertility
Lower abdomen pain is associated with infertility. Experts have found that about 12 percent of patients with pelvic pain are infertile. The pelvic pain, however, can cause a blockage of one or both fallopian tubes, which consequently may prevent the egg from meeting sperm. Damaged fallopian tubes is difficult to cure, and the consequences of inflammation can be manifested as infertility.
