The treatments are suggested to the patients after proper diagnosis, as per the causes and the severity of the condition and pain. Based on physical examination, the following treatment options including medications, hormone treatments, therapies, surgery or certain lifestyle changes are suggested to the patient:
The medication will help to get rid of any infection-causing troubles to cure it and give relief from chronic pelvic pain. Pain-relief medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. may be prescribed to treat the condition of pelvic pain.
Hormone treatments may also be recommended to some patients who have pelvic pain during ovulation. So, the gynecologist will prescribe birth control pills or hormone medicine to help ease the pain. Some antibiotics and antidepressants may also be suggested, depending upon the diagnosis.
If the problem does not get cured even after therapies and medications, surgery is the final method to treat chronic pelvic pain. The surgeries may include:
- Laparoscopic surgery: This is usually performed if the female has endometriosis. During the surgery, the doctor removes the tissues by inserting a slender viewing instrument through a small incision. The process is an outpatient surgery that can be performed within half an hour.
- Hysterectomy: In case the chronic pain is not treatable by other treatment options, the doctor may advise the female to go for hysterectomy.
