does herpes cause pelvic pain?

Recommended Posts

sammiexx

i understand that when a woman gets herpes inside her vagina or on her cervix it can me accompanied by pelvic pain and discharge. The thing is i have been examined internally twice and there is nothing but i have been experiencing pelvic pain that is worse some days and better the next for about 10 days now. I think i may have had a possible exposure when i was sort of on my period. could the virus have traveled up into my cervix and into my pelvis and infected it!? i dunno if that makes any sence:S but this is the second time this has hpnd in the last month and it usually lasts for a week n half or 2 weeks!?

I got pelvic pain before, during and after my obs, and I have seen others on here experiencing the same. I think its because hs lives in the nervous system. But just to be on the safe side, check with your doctor to make sure you haven't got pelvic infection.

Can you guys describe the pelvic pain? I get what I describe as vaginal pressure...feels like something is pushing from the inside. What does your 'pain' feel like?

I had like period pain, deep within my pelvic area, and down my legs and up my spine. Does that help?

Yes, thanks. Sounds different than what I often experience. I get more a pressure. Comes and goes and seems worse when I sit.

No, I don't get sores with the pain. I am suppressive therapy and don't get sores at all actually, just pain.

Does the 'pressure' sound similar to your or do you get more of the pain like GntiNh?

Mine comes and goes. Sometimes on and off for a week, sometimes on and off for a day. When I sit for long periods of time it seems to get worse.

well i went to the doctor today and he said it was PID

becuase he did a nasty test where he put 2 fingers in me and pressed down on areas of the pelvis and there was this one spot that sent SHOOTING pain throguhtout my pelvis and back. SO i am hoping that all my symptoms are PID related and not herpes related :( it does explain A LOT ive had the blood in the urine the random bleeding in between periods the back and pelvic pain... the only think i cant explain is the genital tingling :S but i think i may be making it up as a part of anxiety cuz this tingling lasts for like a week and i never get a sore. soo weird :| this is a very confusing process

Endometriosis

I have gone through a battle for 4 months relating to pelvic pain and other symtoms. I was treated for PID, but it ended up not being that, I got an ultra sound and a CT scan that came back normal and now I have to get a laparoscopy to confirm endometriosis. (which has very similar symptoms to PID)

I did ask the specialist if the herpes could be related. Because I have not had outbreaks, they told me it was highly unlikly.

If you are still having pains, keep fighting-dont give up even if you feel like you are going crazy! The laparoscopy can also be used to help relieve the pain symtoms. I think they burn the lining or something.

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
