Pelvic Pain

Pain is a normal human experience. Living in pain for a long time, however, is not. Within the last decade, our
understanding of pain has grown and changed considerably. We now know that there are many contributing factors that affect people's experience of pain, prognosis, and ability to move forward. The tricky thing about "pelvic pain" is that, unlike other body parts, we don't look at it, touch it, show it to others, discuss it, or inspect it to reassure that all is well. This facilitates more fear, anxiety and questions like "will this get better"?

Persistent Pelvic Pain is defined as pain that you feel in your lower abdomen or pelvis lasting longer than 6 months. It is common and affects around 1 in 6 women. 25 million women are living with pelvic pain worldwide. 40% of all laparoscopies and 12% of all hysterectomies are due to persistent pelvic pain. On average it takes 8-10 years and 6.5 physician visits for women to receive a diagnosis and appropriate treatment for their pelvic pain.
