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?
