How can cramps in the pelvic area and tailbone be treated?

Hi, I have extremely bad period cramps. They’ve been quite extreme for about a year now and I’ve had testing for cysts and endometriosis come back negative. The cramps are in my pelvic region (on the front and back of my torso) and extend from my tailbone up to my rib cage. I feel tired and dizzy too. I don’t know what’s going on and I’m scared, please help me!

As you have done an ultrasound scan and ruled out gynaecological causes it might be then due to spine related problems or a condition known as coccalgia.

You can consult an orthopaedician and get evaluated. You have to go for an MRI scan of the hip to assess further.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I was diagnosed with a pelvic infection last week. I was taking flagyl but i thought it was making my stomach hurt so I was switched to a gel that starts with and M. I have to insert it with an applicator. But come to find out the stomach pain was cramps and i started my period early. I had only use the gel once, then my period came. I waited until the 3rd day of my period to use it again because my flow was heavy. which is uncommon. All throughout my cycle I was lossing tissue. more than usual. And now that i am off my cycle I think im still losing tissue. No blood. Just a dark color massive amount of material covered in clear mucus. It comes out like a discharge. and its texture is dry and cannot easily break apart and is similar to fat on uncooked bacon...A week ago i had an std screening and it came back negative. whats wrong with me? im scared
