Pelvic pain is pain in the lowest part of your abdomen and pelvis. Pelvic pain might refer to symptoms arising from the reproductive, urinary or digestive systems, or from muscles and ligaments in the pelvis.
Depending on its source, pelvic pain can be dull or sharp; it might be constant or off and on (intermittent); and it might be mild, moderate or severe. Pelvic pain can spread to your lower back, buttocks or thighs. You might notice pelvic pain only at certain times, such as when you use the bathroom or have sex.
Pelvic pain can occur suddenly, sharply and briefly (acute) or over the long term (chronic). Chronic pelvic pain refers to any constant or intermittent pelvic pain that has been present for six months or more.
