Pudendal nerve innervates the areas adjoining the clitoris and lower part of pelvis. The nerve entrapment is uncommon. We need to find the other reasons for pelvic pain. There is an entity called CPPS, Chronic Pelvic pain syndrome which needs an assessment by an UroGynecologist.

An chronic problem can lead to low moods. Sometimes vice versa. Get her evaluated by competent UroGynecologist.

There is a possibility of endometriosis if the pain is deeply felt in the pelvis. Clitoral pain may not be of much significance. Get a good USG pelvis done. that will help in ruling out the cause of pelvic pain.
