Chronic pelvic pain 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 quality of life.
Our Approach to Pelvic Pain
Many conditions can cause chronic pelvic pain, and different systems in the body may be involved. When all possible sources of the pain are explored and treated, many women find their pain lessens significantly or goes away.
At UCSF Health, we perform comprehensive evaluations that include physical exams focused on the health problems commonly associated with pelvic pain in women. After the evaluation, we work with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses all aspects of her well-being affected by pelvic pain.
