Endometriosis has a significant effect on women's work productivity, first
Date:6/28/2010

Rome, Italy: The first worldwide study of the societal impact of endometriosis has found a significant loss of work productivity among those women who suffer from the condition, a researcher told the 26th annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology today (Monday). Dr. Kelechi Nnoaham, from the Department of Public Health, University of Oxford, UK, said that the results of this multi-centre study would help highlight the previously unrecognised plight of an estimated 176 million women around the world whose lives are affected by endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a painful inflammatory disease that, for many women, is chronic during their reproductive years. The inflammation occurs in cells similar to the endometrial cells of the uterus, which are found primarily in the pelvic cavity, on pelvic organs, and also on the bowel, bladder and (rarely) in the lungs.

Dr. Nnoaham and colleagues recruited 1459 women aged 18-45 from 14 participating centres in ten countries across five continents to the Global Study of Women's Health (GSWH). The women were all scheduled to undergo a laparoscopy because of symptoms suggestive of endometriosis. Women who had been previously diagnosed with endometriosis were excluded. The participants were asked to complete a comprehensive questionnaire about their symptoms and the impact these had on their lives. After surgical diagnosis the questionnaires were analysed according to whether the women had been diagnosed with endometriosis or other conditions. Those not diagnosed with endometriosis acted as controls.

"Scientists already know that women with chronic pelvic pain report a lower quality of life. But the GSWH is the first study to assess whether women with endometriosis-related pelvic pain are affected differently than those with pelvic pain from other or no identifiable causes, which our study confirmed is indeed the case," said Dr. Nnoaham. "Our research is the first eve
