Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. This tissue, which does not belong outside the uterus, becomes trapped and can cycle with your period, bleed and cause symptoms like pain during and between periods.
Endometriosis is estimated to affect between 3% and 10% of reproductive-aged women, or 1 in every 10 women during their reproductive years.
A common symptom of endometriosis is pain during and between periods

All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
There is no cost to participate. The study medication, study-related procedures, tests, visits and all study-related care will be provided at no cost. If you decide to take part:
Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for their time and travel expenses. You may also be reimbursed for travel to and from the clinical site for each visit. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.
