Abstract

Objective: In women, chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is a common complaint, affecting as many as 15% of women. CPP may originate from both gynaecologic and non-gynaecologic causes, including urological, gastrointestinal, psychiatric and neuromuscular disorders. In CPP, the pain has a neuropathic component because of its chronic nature. This creates difficulty in the treatment of CPP. Thus, we examined both neuropathic pain component and effect of pregabalin in women with CPP.
