Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain occurs in the lowest portion of your abdomen and pelvis. It may be dull or sharp, constant or intermittent, and it can feel mild, moderate, or severe, sometimes radiating to your lower back or thighs.

Pelvic pain can be caused by conditions such as inflamed nerves or interstitial cystitis.
