This report is one of a series from the 2023 National Women’s Health Survey, a representative survey of Australian women aged 18 and over. The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care has funded Jean Hailes for Women’s Health to conduct the annual National Women’s Health Survey since 2017.
Jean Hailes CEO, Dr. Sarah White says, “Findings from the 2023 National Women’s Health Survey suggest that the impact of pelvic pain on women and Australian economy are vastly underestimated.
With the prevalence of pelvic pain, general practitioners and other health professionals should proactively ask women whether they experience pelvic pain rather than wait for women to raise the issue themselves.
