Abstract

Chronic pelvic pain is a complex condition that requires evaluation of the reproductive, gastrointestinal, urologic, musculoskeletal, psychological, and neurological systems. Usually, diagnosis and management entail identifying a network of disorders rather than a single cause of pain with a definitive cure. Only disorders that we commonly encounter in our practice will be discussed in this review.
