Abstract

Objective:
Endometriosis—the implantation of endometrial-like tissue outside of the uterus—burdens an estimated 6-10% of women worldwide and is associated with chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Currently, the standard method of diagnosis is surgery, which creates barriers to care and delays in diagnosis. As a result, many questions fundamental to our understanding of endometriosis remain unanswered. The objective of this work is to identify which research questions are most meaningful to those personally affected by the disease, as compared to those treating and studying it.
