The Botox group reported greater pain relief than the other and also a significant improvement in the quality of life. The researchers conclude that Botox can be of great relief in pelvic pain and pressure, which do not respond to usual treatments. The report is published in the Journal Of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (October).
