Chronic Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is felt below the belly button and between the hips. It may be a sudden, severe pain(acute pelvic pain) or a more moderate pain but last for more than six months (chronic pelvic pain). It can affect both men and women.

Common causes of acute pelvic pain include:

  • Acute pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Appendicitis
  • Peritonitis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Constipation
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Pelvic abscess
  • Endometriosis in women
  • Acute prostatitis in men

Common causes of chronic pelvic pain include:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Diverticular disease
  • Irritable bowel disease
  • Abdominal hernia
  • Post-operative adhesions
  • Musculoskeletal including nerve entrapment, sacroiliac joint or sacrococcygeal pain.
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Urethritis
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome
  • Ovarian cysts, endometriosis, fibroids, vulvodynia or womb prolapse in women
  • Chronic prostatitis, chronic epididymo-orchitis, varicocele and epididymal cysts in men.

With such an array of potential causes of pelvic pain, reaching the correcting diagnosis and treatment can often be complex. We believe that a multi-disciplinary approach, involving experienced clinicians from different specialities, is the correct one to achieve effective, long term results.
