I have pelvic floor dyfunction and I experience your pain except on my right side, my treatment is to massage my right PC muscle (kegel with your finger in and you'll find it) for 5 minutes and then doing kegels.

Try to get into pelvic floor physiotherapy b/c they may be able to get to the root of the problem.


Hello, Kim here. I am 39, no kids, was diagnosed with Adenomyosis in 2005 via biopsy after myomectomy to remove focal growth of 5cm. I have sharp stabbing pains in the entire pelvic area, esp around menstruation time (1 1/2 to 2 weeks PMS to post menstruation). There a few things that help besides pain killers, esp when it is very bad & the pain pills do not help:

Massage- esp for the hips, buttocks

Hot water bottle- against my back or I sit on it according to where the pain is , light massage also helps

Acupuncture- this has helped with a number of symptoms & the symptoms are a lot. My acupuncturist also uses heat therapy such as heat lamp, hot stones on the needles.

My friend who is 48 & was diagnosed with Adenomyosis, Endometriosis & Fibroids, found an experienced physiotherapist knew how to deal with her vaginal pain. Apparently her womb was quite enlarged & was irritating some nerves by pressing on them & the therapist- get ready for it- would palpitate the area in her vag & taught her how to do it also. She claimed it worked! I have not tried this myself. She had a partial hysterectomy, keeping her ovaries & cervix & is about 2 months 2 weeks post surgery. She says all the pains in her lower back & pelvic area are gone. I am planning to have a partial within the next few months & I am hoping I feel as good as she does.

Hope this helps. I would recommend Acupuncture anyday!!!




Did you end up having treatment for pelvic congestion? Did it effect this pain?
