Female Chronic Pelvic Pain
Female Chronic Pelvic Pain: Prevalence, Risk Factors and Clinical Characteristics With Particular Reference to the Pelvic Musculature

The purpose of this study is to investigate the frequency and severity of chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in adult women living in Copenhagen Country and Zealand Country (total population 2,4 million), Denmark, in relation to selected factors, such as basic demographic and clinical factors, health related quality of life, physical activity and abnormal muscular findings in the pelvic area.

Introduction:

The aim of this study is to investigate the frequency and severity of chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in adult women living in Copenhagen Country and Zealand Country (total population 2,4 million), Denmark, in relation to selected factors, such as basic demographic and clinical factors, health related quality of life, physical activity and abnormal muscular findings in the pelvic area.

Methods:

The study is designed as a cross-sectional, questionnaire-based survey and two randomly selected age stratified groups of the responding participating women, one with or one without pain, will receive a clinical examination by a specialist physiotherapist for abnormal muscular finding in the pelvic, lower abdominal or inguinal area.

Results:

Descriptive characteristics will be obtained by univariate analysis and presented as means with standard deviations, or percentages. T test and the Mann-Whitney test will be used to analyze continuous data with and without normal distribution, respectively, and the Chi-square test or Fisher's exact test will be used to analyze categorical data, as appropriate. Correlation between self-reported CPP and abnormal muscular findings will be analysed. Logistic regression analysis will be used to identify the independent variables significantly associated with CPP. For logistic regression analysis, we will select only those findings that are significant as determined by Fisher's exact or the Chi-square test, with values of 0 and 1 assigned to the absence and presence, respectively, of each variable in each subject.
