What are the different types of pelvic pain and how to recognise those?
Pelvic pain originates from a muscular dysfunction such as
- Dyspareunia pain with variable intensity and can be felt by either men or women during sexual intercourse
- Vulvodynia vulvar discomfort lasting over 3 months with no apparent cause
- Vaginismus chronic or prolonged pelvic floor muscles contraction at the opening of the vagina. This involuntary and uncontrollable muscle reflex stops any vaginal penetration of any kind. When vaginismus is partial or situational, contractions then only happen when there is an attempted penetration.
- Vestibulodynia occasional burning or tearing pain when a any type of pressure is involved (gynaecological exam, insertion of tampon, riding a bicycle, vaginal penetration)
- Nevralgia pudendal neuropathic pain touching the pelvic area between the genitalia and anus
- Interstitial Cystitis chronic painful bladder, condition not well known and often misdiagnosis touching the bladder and the pelvic area. The bladder wall is normally covered with a protective layer between urine and the bladder tissue. With this condition, this layer is thinner and therefore the acidity of the urine results in a burning sensation in the pelvic area.
- Irritable bowel syndrome chronic bowel dysfunction causing abdominal pain, constipation and/ or diarrhoea
