Chronic pelvic pain is persistent or intermittent pain that is present in the pelvis in men or women for more than six months. Pain is often associated with emotional deterioration and may be accompanied by complaints about reproductive, sexual, and urinary functions. Chronic pelvic pain in urology has several forms and manifestations: painful bladder syndrome, chronic prostatitis, and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
Pathology can occur both due to inflammatory processes and for other reasons. In men, this syndrome most often indicates the development of chronic prostatitis. In women, chronic pelvic pain typically occurs during menstruation or after intercourse. Of course, with chronic pelvic pain, you need to see a doctor (men should visit an andrologist, women—a gynecologist).
