Do you have moderate to severe pelvic pain caused by endometriosis? Endometriosis affects about 10% of women — approximately 176 million women worldwide — and has no known cause or cure. One of the primary symptoms of endometriosis is pelvic pain. Although many women experience cramping during their menstrual period, women with endometriosis typically describe menstrual pain that’s far worse than usual.
This research study is evaluating an investigational non-hormonal medication to see if it is safe and effective in reducing moderate to severe endometriosis-related pelvic pain. If you have moderate to severe pelvic pain caused by endometriosis, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study.
This study seeks women who are currently diagnosed with endometriosis. Participants are required to attend 7 study visits at the research site over approximately a 6-month period and will be compensated $100 per study visit and $50 per completion of eDiary at the end of each menstrual cycle.
- You may experience an improvement in your endometriosis pain symptoms.
- You will be compensated up to $1,000 for participating in this study.
- You will be helping researchers to provide improved treatment for women experiencing endometriosis pelvic pain
- You will be helping to advance medical research.
- If you decide to participate in the study and later feel that you no longer wish to be part of it, you may withdraw at any time.
- Your records relating to this study and any other information received will be kept strictly confidential, except as required by law.
- Qualified health professionals will monitor your health as it relates to the study.
