Pelvic Pressure, Discomfort, or Pain

Frequent Urination

An urge to urinate, sometimes even after already emptying your bladder

Millions of MEN and WOMEN  suffer from a cluster of urological disorders that include interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome or chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Chronic pelvic pain symptoms are more than pelvic pain. Symptoms can include pelvic pressure, discomfort, pain, frequent urination, or an urge to urinate even after already emptying your bladder.

Symptoms can vary from person to person and even change in the same person over time. Due to their unpredictability and impact, those who suffer from chronic pelvic pain are desperate for help that is beyond the reach of medications.

Life doesn’t have to be this way.

The University at Buffalo Behavioral Medicine Division is offering individuals with moderate to severe pelvic pain the opportunity to take part in an important clinical research program supported by the National Institutes of Health.

The program is called the Easing Pelvic Pain Intervention Clinical Research Program, or EPPIC. EPPIC does not involve drugs or invasive procedures of any kind. What it does require is a willingness to work together to learn tools for taking control of your symptoms rather than them controlling you.
