NONINVASIVE IMAGING OF UTERINE PHYSIOLOGY TO IMPROVE TREATMENT FOR DYSMENORRHEA


The purpose of this study is to find out how contractions of the uterus cause menstrual pain by using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). An MRI scanner takes body pictures using magnetic waves to look at soft tissues of the body. The MRI scanner itself is an FDA approved device.


Blood tests will be performed to see whether you are taking any medications and provide other valuable information about bodily control of pain.


This study will compare women with painful menses (also known as dysmenorrhea) with women without painful menses. Knowing if, when, and where this occurs may help future treatment of dysmenorrhea.


You will be paid a sum of $ 100 for being in this research study. You will be paid $100 for participating in a second visit if you are selected to participate. You will be paid at the completion of each study visit. You will be paid by check or, if you are an employee, paid through payroll. If you do not complete the research study, you will only be paid for the length of time that you were a subject. You will be paid at the time you withdraw from the study.
