Chronic Pelvic Pain | Overview


What is chronic pelvic pain?

Chronic pelvic pain is pain in your pelvic region (the area below your belly button and above your hips) that lasts for at least 6 months. The pain may be steady or it may come and go. It can feel like a dull ache, or it can be sharp. The pain may be mild, or it may be bad enough to interfere with normal daily activities.
