Scientific Questions Being Studied

I am currently exploring the data at this stage to formalize a specific research question regarding women with persistent chronic pelvic pain following endometrial ablation and what role, if any, their stress, cortisol levels, and prolactin levels play in that relationship.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

At this stage, I'm still exploring what questions would be most appropriate once I am able to look at the data available. It will likely be either a mediating regression model with prolactin and cortisol as mediators or a t-test to determine differences between groups depending upon what is available.

Anticipated Findings

At the moment, my work is still preliminary as I begin to formulate a specific research question. That said, I anticipate that greater prolactin and cortisol levels will be present among women with persistent chronic pelvic pain post endometrial ablation.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
