Abdominal and vaginal pain, what can it be?


Abdominal and vaginal pain is one of the most frequent symptoms for which many women go to the gynecological consultation. The causes can be very diverse but in any case it is necessary to carry out a complete clinical examination in order to diagnose the origin of the pain.

With this type of discomfort, it is important that we go to the consultation as soon as possible, since an early diagnosis is key so that the problem does not lead to a more serious one.

Possible disorders associated with abdominal and pelvic pain

Among the most frequent diagnoses we find:

  • Ectopic pregnancy, when the pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg develops outside the uterus, either in the fallopian tubes or elsewhere outside the uterine wall.
  • Ovarian cysts, which form a bag with fluid inside the ovary that can cause discomfort if it increases in size excessively, if it does not remain painless. Its breakage or twisting can cause pelvic pain.
  • Uterine fibroids, which are benign tumors that appear in the womb. It is one of the most common diagnoses, it is estimated that one in five women may have fibroids during their childbearing years.
  • Endometriosis, which occurs when the mucous layer that lines the uterus inside is outside it. It is a disease that affects a high percentage of women.
  • Dysmenorrhea, which is a menstrual disorder in which severe pain is generally associated with menstruation and is caused by uterine contractions.
  • For the correct diagnosis of any of the diseases associated with pelvic and abdominal pain, a multitude of complete diagnostic tests must be performed. Among them, blood tests, urine tests, a culture, a CT scan, x-rays and laparoscopy.
  • It is crucial that we take care of our health and go to our trusted doctor as soon as we notice this type of pain, it does not have to be serious but, if we ignore it and let it go, it can become a problem with a greater impact on our health.
