Chronic pelvic pain is pain in the pelvic area that lasts for six months or longer. Chronic pain can come and go, or it can be constant. It can occur at regular intervals (e.g., during menstruation) or only at certain times (e.g., during sex or urination etc.).
Pelvic pain can be caused by a variety of conditions. Some may be related to the reproductive system, but others may be related to the urinary tract or digestive system. Pelvic pain may be diagnosed with a pelvic exam. To find the cause of your pain, your gynecologist may perform certain imaging tests and procedures, such as pelvic ultrasound, hysteroscopy, and laparoscopy.
Treatment plans will depend on specific causes of pelvic pain.
