least 0.5.

You may NOT be eligible to join if...

- participant has chronic pelvic pain that is not caused by endometriosis, that requires
chronic analgesic therapy, which would interfere with the assessment of
endometriosis-related pain.

- participant has either

1. a newly diagnosed, clinically significant medical condition that requires
