Pelvic pain is a problem for many women Veterans. The type and severity of the pain may vary, and the cause of the pain is often unclear. The pain may be acute (occurs once or every so often), or chronic, causing you to rearrange your life around it. You may think it’s a normal part of life. But it doesn’t have to be. There is relief for chronic pelvic pain and VA can help you. [From VAntage Point]
