Chronic Pain Medicine

Specific treatment for pelvic pain will depend on the cause of the pain and will be discussed with you by your healthcare provider based on:

  • Your overall health and medical history
  • Extent of condition
  • Cause of the condition
  • Your tolerance for specific medicines, procedures or therapies
  • Expectations for the course of the condition
  • Your opinion or preference

Treatment may include:

  • Antibiotic medicines
  • Anti-inflammatory and/or pain medicines
  • Relaxation exercises
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

If a physical cause can’t be found, your healthcare provider may refer you for counseling to help you better cope with chronic pain. In other cases, healthcare providers may recommend a multidisciplinary treatment using a number of different approaches, including nutritional modifications, environmental changes, physical therapy, and pain management.
