Endometriosis Pain Study
Endometriosis growths are benign (not cancerous). But they can still cause problems. Endometriosis happens when tissue that is normally on the inside of your uterus or womb grows outside of your uterus or womb where it doesn’t belong. Endometriosis growths bleed in the same way the lining inside of your uterus does every month — during your menstrual period. This can cause swelling and pain because the tissue grows and bleeds in an area where it cannot easily get out of your body. It may affect more than 11% of American women between 15 and 44. It is especially common among women in their 30s and 40s and may make it harder to get pregnant. Most often, endometriosis is found on the:
- Fallopian tubes
- Tissues that hold the uterus in place
- The outer surface of the uterus
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug for moderate to severe endometriosis pain symptoms.
