What you'll learn in this expert session

In many cases of chronic pelvic pain, it's more useful to think of pain as a condition in itself rather than a symptom of a physical disorder. This presentation outlines how to assess all possible causes of pelvic pain, and work with the patient to develop the best possible management plan for them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why endometriosis and other conditions don't necessarily correlate to pelvic pain
  • Develop a more holistic approach to diagnosis and management, including central mechanisms, peripheral triggers, as well as psychological and functional effects
  • Outline a more nuanced approach to physical examination 
  • Identify the difference between normal and problematic pain during pregnancy and postpartum
