Upper Abdominal Pain Can Still be Gynecologic Disease

Diseases that affect the fallopian tubes and ovaries can spread to the upper abdomen. It's usually pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis, but there are some other rarer causes of upper abdominal pain that begin as gynecologic disease. The reason is disease in Morrison's pouch, which is the gutter around the liver, can be accessed by infection that has spread through the abdomen, or even the pot where endometriosis can hide. So if you aren't getting anywhere checking your upper abdominal pain, it may be time to see your gyno.
