Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Pelvic pain in women is pain in the pelvic region, the pain radiates from within the area between the hips and below the belly button. To be categorised as such, chronic pelvic pain syndrome is usually evident for six months or more and the causes can sometimes be difficult to find.

Signs of Chromic Pelvic Pain Syndrome Include:

  • Severe and steady pain
  • Intermittent pain
  • Dull aching within the pelvic region
  • Cramps or shooting pains
  • Heaviness or dragging feeling within the pelvic area

Many sufferers may also experience pain during lovemaking, when urinating or having a bowel movement or if seated for long periods of time.

Some Causes of Chromic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Endometriosis - where uterine tissue, namely the lining of the womb grows on the outside of the uterus. The tissue responds to the hormonal changes of the monthly menstrual cycle in the same way as the uterus by thickening, breaking down and bleeding. As this is no outlet for the blood and tissue it lodges within the pelvic area leaving painful cysts and scar tissue.

Tension in the muscles of your pelvic floor - A 'tight' pelvic floor is a painful pelvic floor. It will manifest itself in painful spasms or tension within the pelvic floor muscles..

Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, as a result of a long term infection scarring can cause pain within the pelvic organs.

Ovarian remnant following hysterectomy, if all the ovaries are not completely removed any remaining ovarian tissue may develop into a painful cyst.

Fibroids, benign uterine growths that may cause heaviness within the pelvic area.

IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Constipation, bloating, and/or diarrhoea can be a source of pressure and discomfort in the pelvic area.

Painful bladder syndrome (interstitial cystitis), not a bacterial infection! IC is when the bladder becomes chronically inflamed and there is a frequent need to urinate, antibiotics will not 'cure' this type of cystitis.

Psychological factors, a history of sexual or physical abuse, depression, or stress can be a trigger for Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, made worse by emotional problems and pressures.

Pelvic Congestion Syndrome, enlarged and engorged, varicose-vein type veins around the uterus and ovaries can trigger pain.
