Endometriosis is a hormone-dependent condition in which tissue that normally grows inside the uterus grows outside the uterus. Clinical symptoms can include painful menstruation, chronic pelvic pain, pain with defecation (bowl movements), and pain during intercourse.
Cypress Medical Research Center in Wichita is currently conducting a research study in individuals 18-40 years of age who have had a surgical diagnosis of endometriosis.
