Persistent pelvic pain is a common condition, with up to 20% of those affected reporting severe pain. Once end organ disease has been assessed, further investigations should be minimised. Persistent pelvic pain as a hyperalgesic neuropathic pain condition must be considered in the differential diagnosis. A multidisciplinary assessment and management plan, prepared by the co‐ordinating gynaecologist in consultation with the general practitioner, physiotherapist and psychologist (with gastroenterological, urological and pain medicine specialist input as deemed appropriate), is strongly recommended.
