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.
