Noncyclic Chronic Pelvic Pain Therapies for Women
Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (1 of 2)
Data on outcome measures such as quality of life, functional status, and patient satisfaction in the treatment of noncyclic CPP is very limited. These outcomes are important from a patient perspective and also guide treatment decisions in practice.
The available evidence on hormonal therapies for noncyclic CPP is mainly limited to endometriosis-related CPP. There are very few research studies that evaluate hormonal therapies in CPP not associated with endometriosis.
There is a paucity of noncyclic CPP studies evaluating non-hormonal and non-pharmacological interventions, and comparing medical and surgical management.
