Chronic pain is a lingering pain that interferes with women Veterans’ daily lives, and VA Women’s Health encourages women Veterans to talk to their provider to get back to doing the things they love.

As many as 75% of women Veterans accessing VA care experience chronic pain and may experience more barriers to seeking care for chronic pain, including stigma, lack of social support, higher levels of responsibility for home and child-care duties, and limited transportation.
