Progestin for Chronic Pelvic Pain
How Well It Works
Effect on chronic pelvic pain symptoms
- Symptoms improve.
- Pelvic pain and pain during periods are usually reduced.
Progestin is only a temporary solution. When treatment stops, the symptoms of chronic pelvic pain gradually return. Women with more severe pain are more likely to have symptoms return. This may happen earlier than in women who have minimal symptoms.
