Painful sex is distressing. As well as the physical pain, there is the emotional pain women feel when they are unable to enjoy sex with their partner.
A Laparoscopy is an operation used to look inside the abdomen and treat certain types of pelvic pain in women – especially endometriosis.
Endometriosis is a common condition affecting around 5 or 10 in 100 women. It is a problem because it can cause pain, scarring and sometimes trouble getting pregnant.
For a condition that seems to affect so many, it’s surprising how little information we have on pelvic pain in Australia.
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.
