Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes

Patients with chronic pelvic pain syndromes experience pelvic pain for at least six months, frequently with simultaneous urinary symptoms. Men and women are impacted by these conditions, which include interstitial cystitis/painful bladder symptom, a bladder disorder characterized by urinary urgency, frequency and pain. Men may also have prostatitis, which causes pain and difficult urination due to swelling and inflammation of the prostate.
