    Pelvic pain can be acute or chronic. It should never be ignored as the consequences of not acting can be serious.
    Obviously the source/reason for the pain has to be determined. There are numerous causes of pelvic pain some of which include, but, not limited to. -
    Infection, menstrual pain, endomentriosis, urinary tract infection, pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy (when a pregnancy has implanted in the fallopian tubes) ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, pain during sexual intercourse,fibroids, miscarriage.
    If you are experiencing pelvic pain I urge you not to speculate as to to the reason but rather have a full investigation with your GP.
