I know what you are thinking, my job, my bills, all of those errands I have to do, are sometimes just such a pain; now this? More pain? Chronic Pelvic Pain is persistent pain, lasting longer than 6 months, located in the pelvic area between the belly button and the hips. CPP can’t normally be located in one single spot in the pelvis, but instead, usually persists in the entire pelvis region. Unlike your job pain, bill pain, and errand pain, the doctors at the offices of Dr. Alvarez and Dr. Padron can help you rid yourself of CPP and get back to whatever other life “pains” you really need to focus on.
How do I know if I have Chronic Pelvic Pain?
If you are experiencing pain in the pelvic region that has lasted more than 6 months, you may have CPP.
How did I get Chronic Pelvic Pain?
CPP can be the result of many causes or no cause, meaning that sometimes the cause is not immediately obvious. It is possible that psychological factors can play a part in the cause of CPP as chronic pain can take an emotional toll on anyone. Additionally, CPP could be a symptom of another disease such as endometriosis, tension in your pelvic floor muscles, chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian remnant, fibroids, interstitial cystitis, and pelvic congestion syndrome.
