Pelvic Pain

Pelvic Pain

There are many possible causes of pelvic pain. The reason for your individual pain should always be investigated and diagnosed before treatment. You may be referred to a specialist gynaecologist, urologist, gastroenterologist, psychosexual counsellor or other specialist depending on the cause of your pain.

Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) is any pain in or around the pelvis that lasts for more than 6 months and can occur at any age. It can impact on every aspect daily life and be extremely isolating as the cause of the pain is rarely visible on the outside.

What Causes Pelvic Pain?

There is no simple answer to this question and a range of conditions can impact health and lead to pain, these include but are certainly not limited to:

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Adenomyosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Trauma such as a fall or road accident
  • Allergies or irritation
  • History of sexual abuse
  • Surgery
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Childbirth
  • Postural problems
  • Lichen Sclerosus
  • Dermatological conditions
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Ablation complications


The pelvic floor supports the pelvic organs, assists in bladder, bowel and sexual function and provides trunk stability and mobility.

An accurate diagnosis and effective management from the first presentation may help to reduce the disruption of the woman’s life and may avoid an endless succession of referrals, investigations and operations.
