Dr. Allyson Shrikhande had a blog published in Rosy discussing the effects of stress on pelvic pain.


April is Stress Awareness Month, although I’m going to go out on a limb and say stress is something that we’ve all been pretty keenly aware of for most of the past year. Stress and anxiety are fully understandable responses to the way that 2020 and the start of 2021 have unfolded, but that doesn’t change how unpleasant they can be, or the negative impact that these feelings can have on your health.

It’s important to have strategies in place for coping with stress not only for the sake of your mood and emotional state, but also because of the very real relationship that that stress has with your physical health. This is particularly true of people with chronic pain issues. Emotional duress and physical pain very frequently go hand in hand, and it’s critical to treat both sides of this equation.
