There are many things to try if you have chronic pelvic pain. With your doctor's directions and guidance, you can try using pain medications, birth control pills, other hormonal medications or anti-depressant medications, or surgery. You should talk to your doctor about these different things.
One type of surgery for pelvic pain is called a laparoscopy. This surgery uses a special camera to look inside your lower abdomen and pelvis. Laparoscopy is used in many different kinds of surgeries. Using this type of surgery may help women heal faster, go home sooner, and have less pain after the sugery.
You should know that sometimes medicine and surgery cannot make pelvic pain go away. Sometimes the pain will go away for a while and then come back. And no one knows what your body will do after you have surgery. Please talk to your doctor if you have questions.
