Pelvic pain in a woman can often refer to a discomfort in the region of women’s internal reproductive organs. Although pelvic pain is commonly an indication that there is a problem with one of the productive organs, it could sometimes be a sign of infection or the pain could stem from the pelvic bone or in other non-reproductive organs. If the pain is caused by a problem of one of the reproductive organs, it is typically with the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix or vagina.
