What is Female Chronic Pelvic Pain?
If you have discomfort in other areas of your pelvic region in addition to pain in the vulvar region, you may have female chronic pelvic pain. The distinction for female chronic pelvic pain is that it lasts for more than six months and involves the entire pelvic region. Often times, this type of vulvar soreness develops in women with other pain syndromes, such as chronic fatigue syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome. We also see female chronic pelvic pain accompanied by certain mental health conditions, but we assure you that your vulvar pain is not imaginary.
