Endometriosis is a chronic disease that affects women of reproductive age. Chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, and dyspareunia are its main symptoms; the pain alters the quality of life of the patient and affects her health. Since pain is a highly subjective experience, the purpose of this study is to assess the sensory component of pain perception in endometriosis, alongside the affective-emotional and cognitive aspects. These aspects were linked with anamnestic data, anxiety, and depression. We administered appropriate instruments in order to assess these dimensions (QUID - Italian Pain Questionnaire, Biberoglu's Scale, and the HADS Scale), and we evaluated their relationships.
