Pelvic pain most often involves the gastrointestinal or the urinary systems in pre-pubertal girls. However, during late adolescence, gynecologic conditions become more prevalent as etiologies for pelvic pain. Dysmenorrhea and noncyclic pelvic pain are common in adolescents and the management of chronic pelvic pain is often more complex than in adult women.
In today’s episode we will discuss how to diagnosis and treat possible gynecologic and non-gynecologic conditions of chronic pelvic pain in the adolescent female with Stephen Scott, MD.
