It’s something which can be difficult to talk about, but it can lead to incontinence, pain and sexual problems. Dr Ruth Jones joins Jenni Murray to talk about the symptoms, the problems which this condition can cause and how it can be treated.

There are numerous validat4ed outcome tools used as measures of rehabilitation changes in 'normal' dysfunction (eg stroke). However, when dealing with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) and it's nuances, it becomes difficult to find an appropriate tool(s) that effectively addresses all the issues involved. when treating CCP, practitioners must consider the many overlapping co-morbid disorders that occur and which, when left untreated, may contribute to the dysfunction and interfere with full recovery. As a result, it is typical to use more than one outcome measurement (OM) tool to address more than one problem.
Below are some suggested OM tools, however it is important to remember that these OM tools were in the most part developed for research purposes and normative data are unavailable to assist in the interpretation of scores in individual cases. Nonetheless, for those practitioners dealing with pelvic pain who may not have considered urinary or sexual dysfunction co-morbidity, they may provide a useful resource of enquiry as well as a tool to monitor the effects of treatment over time.
