It can sometimes be hard to know how long pelvic pain will last and how best to treat it. It's a little different for every woman. But in general:
- When a cause is found and treated, such as an ovarian cyst, the pain will most likely go away.
- When it's hard to find a cause, your doctor can do a number of tests and try certain treatments to see if they work.
- Symptoms that are caused by hormone fluctuations often go away without treatment when menopause occurs and the ups and downs of hormone levels settle down.
