Overview

Endometriosis affects one in ten women, and is a common cause of pelvic pain and infertility. It is a condition where tissue from inside the womb, grows outside the womb, typically elsewhere inside the abdomen. In particular, endometriosis causes pelvic pain with intercourse (deep dyspareunia), which can have a devastating impact on women’s quality-of-life and relationships.

The focus of my research is on how endometriosis causes deep dyspareunia. I am investigating the genetic, cellular, nervous system, and psychological factors that lead to pain with intercourse in endometriosis. The goal is to identify the ideal treatments to reduce pain and improve sexual function in endometriosis.

Research

Current Projects
Pathophysiology of deep endometriosis: Deep invasive endometriosis is an invasive type of endometriosis that leads to deep dyspareunia and painful bowel movements (dyschezia). I am exploring the cellular and genetic mechanisms behind this invasive form of endometriosis.

Current Projects
Local neurogenesis and deep dyspareunia in endometriosis: I am studying the role of local nerve growth in the pelvis (the pouch of Douglas and uterosacral ligaments) as a cause of deep dyspareunia in endometriosis.

Current Projects
Clinical predictors of deep dyspareunia in endometriosis: Using a prospective database that I developed, I am investigating the variables from history, validated questionnaires, physical examination, and surgical findings, that are associated with deep dyspareunia (and other pain) in endometriosis.
