The research movement is robust, furthering the development of new diagnostic tests and treatment modalities. Our knowledge of pelvic pain disorders has grown dramatically in the past twenty years, with the past three leading us to dramatic new understanding of why interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome, vulvodynia, prostatodynia, pelvic floor dysfunction are so closely related.
