Pelvic & Abdominal Symptoms

There are several conditions that may be caused by these symptoms. Uterine fibroids and pelvic congestion syndrome are two of the possibilities.

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths on or within the lining of the uterus. They can be the source of severe abdominal pain, heavy menstruation and/or painful intercourse are primary symptoms.

Pelvic congestion syndrome has similar symptoms, including pelvic pain that worsens during menstruation, after sex or after physical activity. The pain may worsen during periods of prolonged standing. There may also be abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge.

These symptoms are common to other diseases and health conditions as well. The interventional radiology doctors at IHS can help properly diagnose and evaluate your condition and will work as part of your overall care team to help you find a solution. In addition to diagnostic imaging, we perform minimally invasive and highly effective outpatient treatments for uterine fibroids and pelvic congestion syndrome
