Metrics details. Women with endometriosis often experience gastrointestinal symptoms. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone GnRH analogs are used to treat endometriosis; however, some patients develop gastrointestinal dysmotility following this treatment. The aims of the present study were to investigate gastrointestinal symptoms among patients with endometriosis and to examine whether symptoms were associated with menstruation, localization of endometriosis lesions, or treatment with either opioids or GnRH analogs, and if hormonal treatment affected the symptoms. All patients with diagnosed endometriosis at the Department of Gynecology were invited to participate in the study.
