Very often women turn to gynecologicalcabinet with complaints of unpleasant sensations in the lower abdomen: pulling pain, tingling in the lower abdomen, etc. As a rule, this testifies to purely female diseases that are associated with the reproductive system. Infringements can be revealed in the field of the uterus, cervix or appendages. Some other types of pelvic organs can also cause frequent tingling in the lower abdomen.

Physicians share pains localized belowabdominal cavity, into two kinds. The first type includes regular pain, which appears immediately before the beginning of the menstrual cycle, and with the cessation of menstrual periods receding. The second group (large) includes pain that is not associated with PMS.

The tingling in the lower abdomen can be caused, as gynecological practice shows, by the period of ovulation, dysmenorrhea, or endometriosis.

But there are types of pain that are not associated with women's diseases (gynecological). They can be caused by disturbances in the work of the gastrointestinal tract:

  • constipation (if they are caused by a tumor);
  • appendicitis;
  • intestinal obstruction;
  • gastroenteritis;
  • various inflammatory processes;
  • paraproctitis;
  • diverticulitis.

In addition, tingling in the lower abdomen is associated with some problems in the functioning of the urinary system:

  • pyelonephritis;
  • urolithiasis disease;
  • cystitis.
