What is Pelvic Pain?
According to the International Pelvic Pain Society (IPPS), chronic pelvic pain is one of the most prevalent medical complaints among women. Often difficult to classify, pelvic pain most commonly consists of pain experienced in the pelvic, vaginal, and/or rectal regions of the body. Sometimes, pelvic pain can also radiate into areas as high as the abdomen or as low as the upper leg.
Persons suffering from pelvic pain experience a broad range of symptoms and functional limitations. Some of the most common symptoms include pain or discomfort while sitting, pain during or after sexual intercourse, and painful bowel or bladder function. The origins of pelvic pain are as diverse as the symptoms they wreak, resulting from such conditions as adhesions within or around the pelvic organs and musculature, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and trauma such as falls, surgeries, and childbirth.
