The Link between Pelvic Pain and Yeast Infection



It is easy to conclude that pelvic pain can be caused by yeast infection. It’s in the same general area, and many women who are diagnosed with yeast infection in the vaginal tract have felt pain in the pelvic area.

Relieving Pelvic Pain

In order to get rid of and treat the pain in the pelvis, it is best to address first why the pain exists. If the pain had been caused by yeast infection, then until that infection is controlled, the pain would not subside. Still, there is no need to suffer the pelvic pain because it can be managed by other means until the infection subsides:

1. Analgesic drugs or pain killers- depending upon one’s tolerance for the pain, the painkiller maybe an over the counter drug that you can pick up at the local pharmacy.
2. Exercises- there are exercise routines that can relieve pelvic pain, but it is best to seek the opinion of a medical professional for these types of exercises.
3. Acupuncture- the ancient Chinese medical procedure has had wide acceptance in the western medical profession as a good tool for pain management.
4. Herbal Medicines

The Best Cure

If the patient is sure that the pain in her pelvis is due to a yeast infection, getting rid of the infection would obviously be the best cure and remedy. The former will not exist if the latter has been managed and is under control. The pharmacy is your best source for remedies and treatments that will rid the body of that infection fast, and most of the medications are also available without prescription. The meds will guarantee that the infection will be controlled, but not that the risk of getting infected again is eliminated or even minimized.

For that type of guarantee, the woman must take holistic measures that see the system and processes of infection to nip it in the bud, rather than just cure it as it comes.

However, as a warning, pelvic pain may not always be the symptom of yeast infection or vaginal yeast infection. The woman must be wary of the symptoms before she can assume that Candida fungus is creating the infection. The most common signs of vaginal yeast infections are itching in the genital area, thick white discharge that can have foul odor or sometimes odorless, burning sensation and swelling of the affected area. If the woman has all these signs she must go to the doctor immediately for checkup and diagnosis. The pelvic pain is the greatest sign that the infection is already affecting the lower body parts and creating more complications.



Pelvic pain caused by yeast infections varies in their physical symptoms and manifestations. Sometimes pain in the pelvic area occurs only during sexual intercourse and there is a feeling of cramping and feeling of pressure inside the woman’s pelvis. There is also an intermittent occurrence of dull ache or irritations during bowel movements. These painful events are caused by different physiological events such as endometriosis, inflammation of the pelvis, spasms of the pelvic floor and other lower body physiological disorders. Take note also that some form of vaginal yeast infections come from the intestinal tract. It happens that when there is already an overgrowth of fungus in the intestines, the yeasts may leak to other parts of the body particularly the lungs, sinuses and to then to the vaginal tract.

But as have been said, pain can also be caused by diseases, including sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), stress, pregnancy, or other microorganisms that cause internal infections to the reproductive system of women. To ensure that you are not suffering from yeast infection syndrome a clinical test must be conducted thoroughly. A smear of your vaginal discharge will tell all the stories behind your vaginal infections.
