Pelvis pain is any discomfort in the pelvis. Pelvic pain often refers to pain in the region of women’s internal reproductive organs. However, pelvic pain can be present in men, also, and can stem from multiple causes. Pelvis pain may be a symptom of infection or may arise from pain in the pelvic bone or in non-reproductive internal organs, such as the bladder or colon. In women, pelvic pain can very well be an indication that there may be a problem with one of the reproductive organs in the pelvic area such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, or vagina.
