What are scars?

Scars are a natural part of the body's healing process. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues. Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring.

Scars can develop both externally and internally (known as scar tissue or adhesions). When scars develop internally, multiple areas of the body can be affected from the organs and the muscle to the connective tissue.

There are multiple reasons scars that affect pelvic pain can develop:

• Episiotomy
• Perineal/vaginal tears (due to childbirth)
• Cancer
• Post-op
• C-section
• Endometriosis
• Hysterectomy
• Tummy tuck
• Hernia
• Infection
