The relationships between menstrual problems and endometriosis over time.
Menstrual problems, such as severe period pain (dysmenorrhea), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), irregular periods and heavy menstrual bleeding, affect more than 20% women of reproductive age. They are clinical manifestations of some gynaecological conditions. Endometriosis is one of these conditions that affects 2-17% childbearing women with severe period pain. Few studies have explored the associations between menstrual problems and endometriosis in life course. This project aims to fill this gap by investigating the relationships between menstrual problems and endometriosis over time.
