No matter what pelvic pain condition you live with, you should get the correct care and treatment.
Your pain is real and you deserve a correct diagnosis. No cure DOES NOT EQUAL no treatment.
Studies indicate that dismissal of symptoms or treatment leads to more health, nervous system complications and reproduction issues days, months or years later. It is clear that medical barriers are still prevalent in healthcare when it comes to pelvic health and chronic pain.
The pelvic health community is only growing and people are speaking up about their personal journeys and want to form connections with others like you to help spread awareness.
This resource guide was created to help you better understand your pelvic pain and find helpful resources to help you on your journey.
This guide was made from our own pain and suffering and we want it to be a tool and resource for others who are living in silence with chronic pelvic pain. We hope to empower and help shorten other’s journey so that they can get the answers and care needed to begin healing sooner, rather than later. Below are a few ways your donation will help:
Your contribution will help expand future goals and initiatives that can deliver sustainable pelvic health awareness, ensuring everyone can receive the correct education and integrated care they need no matter their circumstance.
Your contribution will allow us to connect with more people living with pelvic pain using in-person and online support groups, local events, and social media.
