Abstract: In patients with chronic pelvic pain (CPP), depression is more common than in matched controls and is significantly associated with functional and social impairment and decreased quality of life. No research has specifically assessed the effect of depression treatment on outcomes for patients with CPP. However, screening for depression in such patients is recommended because of the potential effect on functioning and quality of life. (SOR: C, based on extrapolation from limited evidence.)
