Welcome to GELLES
The Genetic variants, Early Life exposures, and Longitudinal Endometriosis symptoms Study (GELLES) aims to improve our understanding of the factors that put women at increased risk of endometriosis and delay its diagnosis.
The GELLES pilot study is currently open to women born between 1989 and 1995 who hold a Medicare card. The study is open to all women in this age group. You don’t need to have an endometriosis diagnosis or symptoms to participate.
Study participants will:
- Complete a survey on early life history and reproductive symptoms during adolescence
- Participate in a 30-60 minute focus group or interview via videoconferencing or telephone
