How does a doctor diagnose pelvic pain?

A physician will take a complete medical history and pelvic exam, and may recommend:

  • imaging technology
  • cultures
    • Swabs taken from her vagina or cervix may detect infection or sexually transmitted diseases.
  • laparoscopy
    • A thin tube with a camera attached to its end provides an effective way for a gynecologist to check for endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
