At the Pelvic Pain Foundation we are approached by researchers from different backgrounds keen to learn more from girls, women and men about their experiences. They are grateful to those who complete the survey, and often continue on to other pelvic pain research, based on what they’ve learned from the survey.
So, will it benefit you? No. Not directly. However, one of the major things holding up progress in pelvic pain, is a lack of research, and a lack of data to support extra services. Being involved in research is something that allows your voice to be heard, and helps those people with your condition in the future. They include an opportunity to be informed of the outcome of the study when it is finally completed and published, although that can be a few years down the track.
This page has surveys that are looking for your help now.
