Unfortunately, there are multiple possible causes of chronic pelvic pain, especially in females. Therefore, it is really impossible to offer you a specific diagnosis over the Internet.

You should be reassessed by your Gynecologist. If you do not find his/her evaluation to be satisfactory, then you might consider obtaining a second opinion.
