Overview

Led by researchers at Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, the LongSTEPPP project aims to find out how we can best care for young people experiencing period pain, pelvic pain, or who may have suspected or confirmed endometriosis.

LongSTEPPP stands for the Longitudinal Study of Teenagers with Endometriosis, Period and Pelvic Pain in Australia. It is a five-year study that runs from 2022-2027. 

Most young people who have periods will experience some pain. For some people, this is manageable and will not change normal day-to-day activities. For others, the pain they experience will stop them from doing everyday activities and may impact their quality of life and mental health.
