ABOUT US

Pelvic Pain affects 1 in 5 women and 1 in 12 men at some time in their life—yet it’s a condition that is rarely discussed.

As most types of pelvic pain can’t be diagnosed with blood tests or scans, it’s easy for women and men with this problem to suffer pain for years before finding the help they need.

The Pelvic Pain Foundation of Australia is a not-for-profit organisation formed to build a healthier and more productive community by improving the quality of life of people with pelvic pain.

We realise that pelvic pain affects a large number of girls, women and men of all ages, ethnicities and social backgrounds. We aim to minimise the suffering and burden of pelvic pain on individuals, their families and the community through awareness, education, funding, support and research.

This website provides information for those affected by pelvic pain, their families and their health care providers, regardless of income, location or access to services.
