May Is Pelvic Pain Awareness Month! May Is Pelvic Pain Awareness Month!
May 1, 2018
While there are many causes to be aware of and advocate for, one close to our hearts at the International Pain Society is abdomino-pelvic pain, and we are excited to report that May is Pelvic Pain Awareness Month! This designation for May was created by the International Pelvic Pain Society last year. So let’s talk a few moments about what is pelvic pain, how impactful the diagnosis can be, and what we can do!


The IPPS website is currently undergoing a major update. Currently, some functionality is down. We expect to go live with our new site and restored functionality by May 25th.
