Chronic Pelvic Pain and Sexuality

Chronic pelvic pain is defined as "chronic or persistent pain in the structures related to the pelvis in both men and women". It commonly impacts on cognitive, sexual and emotional behaviour. It often manifests as gynaecological, sexual, intestinal or pelvic floor dysfunction. A MULTIDISCIPLINARY approach must therefore be taken to treatment. 

Chronic pelvic pain lasts for six months or more and affects the pelvic area, the abdominal wall of the bellybutton and below, the lumbosacral area of the back and/or buttocks and is of sufficient intensity to cause disability in the patient and/or require medical attention.

This has a clear effect on the quality of life of people suffering from the condition.
