exp date isn't null, but text field is


Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) is defined by the RCOG as intermittent or constant pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis of at least 6 months’ duration, not occurring exclusively with menstruation or intercourse and not associated with pregnancy. It is a symptom and not a diagnosis. CPP is common in the UK with a  prevalence in primary care comparable with that of low back ache, asthma or migraine.
