Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic Pelvic pain is felt in the lower part of your stomach that lasts 6 months or longer.

It can be a symptom of a disease or a medical problem, or it can be a condition on its own. If your chronic pelvic pain is caused by a medical problem, treating that problem may be enough to eliminate your pain.

 

However, in many cases it's not possible to identify a cause for chronic pelvic pain or despite treating the medical condition sometimes the pain persists.
