Pelvic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is pain in the pelvic area lasting 6 months or longer. CPP is a complex condition affecting 1 in 4 females that can be accompanied by a wide range of symptoms like pain or pressure in the pelvic or genital regions, and an assortment of stomach issues. The most common causes of CPP are painful bladder syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, myalgias (muscle pain or aches), and endometriosis. People with CPP often have more than one pelvic pain syndrome. CPP conditions can overlap with sleep or mood disorders, or other pain conditions, which can make pain more severe.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a complex chronic condition where a tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found outside of the uterus. The tissue deposits can cause inflammation and long-lasting symptoms like pain and infertility. More specifically, people with endometriosis can have: painful periods, pelvic pain, pain related to sex, pain with bowel movements, pain during urination, fatigue, depression, anxiety, bloating, nausea, and/or infertility.

Infertility

Infertility is the inability to get pregnant after one year of regular, unprotected penetrative sex. Approximately 1 in 6 couples experience infertility. Infertility may be due to age-related loss of oocytes (immature egg cells) or decreased egg quality in females. It can also be related to disease (infection) or lifestyle factors like diet and stress which can affect fertility in either partner. In females, gynecologic conditions like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian insufficiency, or endometrial polyps can cause infertility.
