The Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Laboratory focuses on clinical and basic science research related to endometriosis-associated pelvic pain.
Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women of reproductive-age (~1 million women in Canada) and an unmeasured number of transgender and gender diverse people. It is defined as tissue, similar to the tissue from inside the uterus growing elsewhere, typically in the pelvis. Endometriosis can cause painful menstrual cramps, chronic pelvic pain, and sexual pain, in addition to potential impact on fertility. Please browse our website to learn more about our research!
Our laboratory does not provide clinical services. If you would like a referral to see one of our physicians please visit the BC Women’s Centre for Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis website.
