Furthermore, 61 percent of these women do not have a diagnosis for their symptoms.
Chronic pelvic pain can be constant or recurring and occur at any time including during
menstruation, before and after eating, while urinating, or during intercourse. It
is debilitating on a woman's daily life as well as on her physical, mental, and emotional

does not mean the pain is not real.
