Pelvic pain can be caused by "pelvic congestion". When women are sexually aroused, they experience some degree of pelvic congestion caused by an increase of blood flow to the vagina and vulva. This congestion, which is normal and temporary, is usually relieved by orgasm. If a woman does not orgasm, the congestion subsides, but more slowly.

Pelvic congestion can also be associated with unexplained pelvic symptoms that are uncomfortable, and even painful. Pelvic congestion, primarily affecting premenopausal women, is not considered a disease, but a medical condition that describes a transient state related to the phase before menstruation occurs. Pelvic congestion syndrome is a collection of symptoms, including chronic pelvic discomfort or pain and pelvic congestion itself.
