  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease – an infection of the womb, fallopian tubes or ovaries
  • Fibroids – non cancerous tumours that grow in or around the womb
  • Adhesions – internal scar tissue that forms between organs or structures
  • Bladder problems such as a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) or Cystitis
  • Bowel problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or constipation
