The aim of the current project is to focus on young women, between 18 and 35 years old, with and without pelvic pain, in order to enhance the understanding of pelvic pain and the development of problems over time. The project will focus on psychological and relational factors such as avoidance, endurance, fear of pain, catastrophizing, sensualism and emotional health. The study will use a longitudinal design with three measurement points.
