Pelvic pain can be a frightening, uncomfortable, or embarrassing symptom. It is more common among women, than men. Pelvic pain can be a symptom of many things, ranging from benign and harmless, to serious and critical. Either way, it is uncomfortable, and in many cases treatable.

My detailed article on the causes of pelvic pain, is available on women's web.
