Pelvic Pains with infection
My friend has been complaining about a pelvic pain that started by her bladder. She now has this pain by her bladder and her womb. SHe has been to the doctor on more than one occassion. On her last visit to the doctor they has scans done, and still cant find what is causing the pain. They have given her medication for a bladder infection, which seems to help with the pain, but she is curious as to why they aren't able to find the cause. Her pain is constant, sometimes sharp. Can you help? Regards T

Possible causes are chronic infections and endometriosis. These are not detectable on scan.
