Chronic pelvic pain is a common, multifaceted presentation seen daily in primary and specialty care offices. While it is a more common presentation in women (15%-20%), it is also reported in 8% of men.1 Chronic prostatitis (CP) or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is defined as urologic symptoms and/or pain or discomfort in the pelvic region.2 Such syndromes may include epididymal pain syndrome, pelvic floor muscle pain, penile pain syndrome, postvasectomy pain syndrome, and prostate pain syndrome.1 Presenting complaints of CP/CPPS may include penile, testicular, perineal, and lower abdominal pain; pain during or after ejaculation and/or urination; urinary frequency and urgency; sensation of incomplete emptying; and erectile dysfunction.
