What's Chronic Pelvic Pain?

Chronic pelvic pain is discomfort in your pelvic floor that lasts six months or longer. A common cause of pelvic pain is a weak pelvic floor—and uterus. You can experience chronic pelvic pain at any age, but it’s more common after menopause.

  • Bladder discomfort
  • Bowel problems, such as incontinence, urgency, pain, or constipation
  • Muscle tightness in the pelvic floor
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain in the groin, tailbone, low back, buttocks or vagina
  • Vaginal or vulva irritation
