RCOG | Initial management of chronic pelvic pain

13th June 2012 by Louise Hudman

This is an excellent guideline and well worth a read. A lengthy summary I’m afraid.

Chronic Pelvic Pain is described as pain for at least 6 months which is not just related to menstruation, intercourse or pregnancy.

There is a big emphasis in the guideline on looking at pain as both a physical and an emotional response to a stimulus. The emotional response comprises psychological and social elements. It has been shown that addressing all these elements from the start, is much more successful than just addressing the physical aspect.

"The NASGP and the GP locum chambers that I'm in have provided invaluable assistance both before and through Covid-19 to me as a full-time GP locum. All aspects of locum work have been made easier as a result of membership and the chamber's support structure - from accessing work, to ensuring invoicing and documentation is all sorted, and access to other locums as peer support. Having a chamber manager means I feel more secure and can devote more of my energy on my clinical work."
