Chronic pelvic pain is defined as pain that has been under the umbilicus for at least six months. It can be seen in men and women. It may or may not be associated with menstruation in women. A significant portion of the patients are in the form of neuropathic pain as a result of dysfunction of the nervous system.

 Gynecological, gastrointestinal, urological, musculoskeletal and various disorders throughout the body can cause chronic pelvic pain. In women, 20% of pelvic pain is due to gynecological reasons.

2. Pelvic inflammatory disease; It is an infectious disease of female organs due to sexually transmitted diseases. Apart from this, appendicitis may also develop due to tuberculosis and intestinal infections.
