Abstract

BONACHEA-PENA, René Rafael et al. Chronic pelvic pain in women. AMC [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.4, e7803.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background:

chronic pelvic pain is a frequent gynecological problem in women of childbearing age. It is defined as non-cyclical pain that persists for six months or more, located in the pelvis, in the infra-umbilical portion of the anterior abdominal wall, in the lumbosacral region or in the gluteal region, causing functional disability. Women of childbearing age are without a doubt the fundamental age group for global health and for future generations. Many women come to the gynecology clinic for having chronic pelvic pain and when the medical history is done, a high incidence of fertility problems is observed.

Objective:

to characterize the behavior of chronic pelvic pain of gynecological cause in patients of childbearing age.

Methods:

an observational, descriptive, cross-sectional study was carried out. The study population consisted of 123 patients with a diagnosis of chronic pelvic pain of gynecological cause and of childbearing age, which weretreated in a gynecology consultation at the Comandante Manuel Fajardo Rivero Teaching Clinical Hospital of Villa Clara during the period from September 1st, 2017 to September 30th, 2019.

Results:

the women in the study were adults. The main cause of pain was endometriosis. Most of the women were multiparous and had infertility.

Conclusions:

most of the patients with chronic pelvic pain in childbearing age were adults. The main cause of chronic pelvic pain was endometriosis, followed by adhesions. Most of the women were multiparous and had infertility.
