Research Team:

Principle Investigator: Prof. Sonia Grover

Research Coordinator: Ms Sena Arpaci

Summary:

Our research focuses on understanding the emotional experiences and health-seeking responses of individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB) who have undergone a normal laparoscopy for persistent pelvic pain. Pelvic pain, a condition rarely discussed, often results in prolonged suffering for those without a clear diagnosis. Current evidence demonstrates that up to half of the women who have a laparoscopy (diagnostic surgery) for persistent pelvic pain have no cause identified, that is they have a negative or normal laparoscopy. By delving into the emotional and health-seeking repercussions of receiving a normal laparoscopy outcome, we aspire to contribute valuable insights, thereby improving our understanding of the complexities surrounding persistent pelvic pain.

Who is eligible?
All individuals who identify as AFAB, aged 18 to 45, who have received a normal laparoscopy outcome for investigation of pelvic pain, are invited to participate.

How will you inform the project of your findings?

These findings may be published in academic journals and made available for researchers and health practitioners to further investigate the issue.
The findings of this study may possibly be presented at many Pelvic Pain conferences. All of this will be done in a way that keeps your identity hidden.
