Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is one of the most common clinical syndromes that accompanies a number of gynecological diseases. The aim was to study the efficacy of treatment patients with cyclical CPP wit the application of herbal medications Vimens. It was examined 86 patients of reproductive age and 25 from them were apparently healthy and made up the group I. Group II was assigned 30 women with CPP who received COCs on an intermittent schedule and NSAID rectal suppositories for pain. In group III 31 patients with CPP assigned to single capsule Vimens daily and rectal NSAIDs in the presence of pain. It was studied the severity of the pain, the level of reactive and personal anxiety, and quality of life in all surveyed women. The work has suggesteda complex phytopreparation Vimens in patients with cyclical CPP pathogenetically substantiated. This was confirmed by a decrease in the amount of NSAIDs used in Group III at 3 months of treatment by 2.4 times compared to the group II. The appointment of Vimens additionally to NSAIDs has significantly reduced the level of pain on the VAS, reactive and personal anxiety in the test Spielberger-Khanin and quality of life with questionnaire SF-36.
