Results

This chapter presents the results of our systematic review of therapies for women with noncyclic chronic pelvic pain (CPP). We present findings for each Key Question (KQ) beginning with an overview of the content of the literature as a whole, including the range of study designs used, approaches assessed, and participants included. The detailed analysis of the literature provides further discussion and analysis, focusing primarily on those studies that received either a good or fair quality rating.

Methods

The topic for this report was nominated in a public process. We drafted the initial Key Questions (KQ) and analytic framework and refined them with input from key informants. After review from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the questions and framework were posted to a public Web site. The public was invited to comment on these questions.
