Chronic pelvic pain is a common gynaecological problem. It has an estimated prevalence of 38 per 1,000 in women aged 15-73. This rate is comparable with that of asthma (37/1,000) and chronic back pain (41/1,000). It is the single most common indication for referral to gynaecology clinics, accounting for 20% of all outpatient appointments in secondary care.
