Abstract

Objectives; To find an association between menstrual cycle length in females with endometriosis and healthy females.
Material and methods: A cases control study was conducted at tertiary care teaching hospitals of Lahore Pakistan. This
study comprised of 50married females aged between 20-40 years, laparoscopically diagnosed with endometriosis as
cases and 50 married healthy females of same age group as control group. Females with conditions like leiomyomas
and carcinomas or any other co-morbid condition were excluded. After informed consent, a structured questionnaire was
filled up by both cases and control. The association between menstrual cycle length and endometriosis was compared
by Pearson’s correlation. The results were expressed as r, and statistically significant was set as p- value less than 0.05.
Results: A moderately strong correlation (r= 0.662, p= 0.000*) with positive trend was obtained between short menstrual
cycle length (<28 days) in females with endometriosis as compared to healthy females.
Conclusion: There is strong association between short menstrual cycle length and endometriosis.
