Noncyclic Chronic Pelvic Pain Therapies for Women
Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (2 of 2)
The prevalence rates cited in the literature for comorbidities associated with noncyclic CPP, including dyspareunia, dysmenorrhea, IBS, and major depressive disorder, are highly variable. The lack of standardized definitions and diagnostic criteria for the various comorbidities, as well as potential geographical variations in occurrence of certain comorbidities, contribute to this variability.
The etiology of noncyclic CPP is complex, and the experience of pain is a combination of physical and psychosocial factors. CPP, therefore, requires a multidisciplinary approach to its management. However, this is not sufficiently highlighted in the medical literature and applied in clinical practice.
