This meeting will cover the following five major topics related to gynecologic pain:

  • Menstrual pain
  • Vulvar pain
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis-associated pain

Speakers will give an overarching view of the most relevant topics within their field of expertise, share their recent research findings, and discuss progress, successes, challenges, gaps, and potential future directions in a discussion session.
