Are Uterine Fibroids Causes of Pelvic Pain?

Our Georgia fibroid specialists know that these muscular tumors can cause pelvic pain because they form within your uterine cavity or wall; they may also grow externally, attached to the uterus by stalk-like growths. Many women's fibroid symptoms include pelvic pain, back pain and heavy bleeding. But if fibroids are the cause of your symptoms, our experts can help you find relief with minimally-invasive, non-surgical Uterine Fibroid Embolization.


When you have endometriosis, endometrial tissue grows outside your uterus. This causes pelvic pain and heavy bleeding during periods, mimicking symptoms of other conditions and often leading to delayed or missed diagnoses.

Adenomyosis Can Cause Pelvic Pain

Adenomyosis may cause pelvic pain because, with this condition, endometrial tissue grows within your uterine walls. In turn, it becomes enlarged and may press painfully against your other organs. Additionally, you may suffer from painful periods with adenomyosis, since your blood has to travel through both the vaginal canal and uterine walls for shedding.

Now, this condition is difficult to diagnose; in fact, one woman in Australia spent 30 years awaiting her diagnosis. However, once identified, we can treat this condition with uterine artery embolization (UAE) in Georgia.

PCS, Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

If you're diagnosed with PCS, that means varicose veins have formed in your lower pelvis and/or abdomen, leaving you with dull, chronic pelvic pain. Luckily, we can treat PCS with Pelvic Vein Embolization (PVE). And this treatment, along with Ovarian Vein Embolization (OVE), is now being investigated in a clinical trial exploring relief for pelvic venous diseases (PeVD) such as PCS, May-Thurner syndrome and more .

By now, it's evident how many causes of pelvic pain could be causing your discomfort. We hope this post will help you find your way to an accurate diagnosis. And, if that diagnosis involves fibroids, PCS, and/or adenomyosis, request a consultation with our Georgia specialists to discuss minimally invasive treatment options.
