In order to diagnose pelvic pain, it’s essential for Balcones OB/GYN to perform a pelvic examination. Our Austin team might also opt to perform imaging scans and lab tests. Depending on the severity of the pain and what’s causing it, Dr. Binford may deem it necessary to consult with another doctor or refer you to a specialist.
You will be asked about your medical history and may also be asked to keep a record of your pain. This involves taking notes on when the pain occurs, what it feels like and its duration. This will aid Dr. Binford in finding the cause of your discomfort.
After Dr. Bindford finds what’s causing the pain, she and her Austin team can recommend a treatment regimen to help manage it or treat the cause. This may involve:
- Prescription or non-prescription medicines
- Surgical intervention
- Heat therapy
- Nutritional and physical therapy
