The pelvis contains a number of organs such as the womb, ovaries, small and large bowel as well as muscles, ligaments and nerves which means that it can sometimes be difficult to work out the underlying cause or causes of symptoms.
Assessment is by taking a comprehensive history of all of the symptoms together with careful examination. Investigations would normally include: screening for pelvic infection and a pelvic ultrasound scan. MRI can also be useful. In the right circumstances the gold standard test is to perform a diagnostic laparoscopy (keyhole surgery to examine the pelvis) which allows accurate diagnosis but also treatment of conditions eg endometriosis or adhesions. This also will allow Mr Miskry to assess whether there are implications for future fertility.
