Chronic Pelvic Pain Center

Chronic pelvic pain, or CPP, is one of the most common medical problems among women. It is defined as pain in the pelvis that lasts more than six months and affects the woman's quality of life. At the UCSF Chronic Pelvic Pain Center, we believe it is important to consider all aspects of health — mind, body and spirit — when caring for women with CPP.

There are many potential sources of pelvic pain that should be investigated. Pelvic pain may involve the urinary, reproductive, gastrointestinal, neurological, psychological and musculoskeletal systems. When all the different sources of CPP are explored and treated, many women find relief. For some women that means complete remission of their pain, for others it means a significant improvement in their quality of life.

We'll begin by asking you to complete a comprehensive history form (available in English and Spanish) to bring with you on your first visit. This form was created by experts in the field of chronic pelvic pain and addresses many aspects of your health — take your time filling it out. We will review this history form with you at your first visit.

After reviewing your history and health records, we will conduct a physical exam that pays particular attention to the health problems common among women with pelvic pain. At the end of the visit we will develop a treatment plan together, to care for all aspects of your health that are affected by living with CPP.
