Answer

In patients with refractory symptoms, a multidisciplinary approach may be indicated. Patients with pelvic pain do not routinely need consultation with a gynecologist in the ED, though they should be directed to follow up on an outpatient basis. Exceptions include certain infectious entities (eg, abscesses), as well as endometriosis.
