Chronic pelvic pain

Introduction

Chronic pelvic pain is pain in your pelvic region, which is the area below your bellybutton and above your hips that lasts for at least 6 months. The pain may be a steady or it may come and go. It can feel like a dull ache, or it can be sharp. The pain may be mild, or it may be bad enough to interfere with normal daily activities.
