Hello Anna, this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are having continued lower abdominal/pelvic pain. You don't mention anything about your periods, are they regular? Do you still get your periods? When did you have your last GYN examination/PAP smear?
