Centering Chronic Pelvic Pain Group

If you have Chronic Pelvic Pain and want to learn about your health and how to manage your pain, join our group! In the group, you will be with other women suffering from the same problem, so you can learn from each other and support each other. You will have access to a medical provider who will check in with you at each group to see how you are doing. You will receive a lot of information that is difficult to get during regular medical visits because of limited time. This information will empower you to better manage your pain and improve your quality of life. You will also be invited to voluntarily participate in online research to help health professionals better understand how chronic pelvic pain affects women.

Topics include:

  • Understanding Chronic Pelvic Pain
  • Easing Pain and Symptoms
  • Pelvic Floor Therapy
  • Setting Goals
  • Medications
  • Communication
  • Sexual Intimacy
  • Managing Stress
  • Nutrition
  • Caring for Your Spirit
