I have experiencing pelvic pain after menapause for 15 years, this just started happening, after I had a MRI with contrast dye. My doctor did ultrasound only fibroid tumors that I had for years. What else can cause pelvic pain on and off.

Dear username15.

Thank you for returning to the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question about pelvic pain after menopause.


Pelvic pain after menopause can come from a variety of gynecologic disorders, including benign or malignant tumors, pelvic adhesions or interstitial cystitis. The most common causes of mild to severe pelvic pain among post-menopausal women are fibroids or vulvodynia.

Username15, since the ultrasound confirmed fibroid tumors that is most likely the culprit.

However, to answer your question, other non-gynecologic conditions such as colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease or colorectal tumors can also be responsible for pelvic pain.

Here is a great article from the EmpowHER community about fibroids for you to take a look at.

Username15, did this help?
