How to Treat quiz: Persistent post-partum pelvic pain

Relevance to General Practice

Persistent pelvic pain in the post-partum period can be a significant issue for many women, greatly affecting their experience as a new mother. 
Pregnancy induces many changes in the body: hormonal, neuro-immunological changes and mechanical. 
The three dominant pain syndromes in new mothers are pelvic girdle pain, pudendal neuropathy and incisional neuropathy related to either episiotomy or caesarean section 
These conditions often coexist, particularly if there has been a long or traumatic labour. Most tissue healing postpartum occurs within six weeks. GPs play a key role in deciding when to address pain if it is lingering beyond the expected healing time and requires additional management.
