Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Objective: To determine the survival of pain complaints at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months and the correlation between age at diagnosis, age of menarche, parity, stage of disease and post-operative medication in endometriosis patient at RSUPN Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo.

Methods: This was a prospective cohort study with survival analysis method of 139 women of productive age with endometriosis who came to Gynecology Outpatient Clinic in Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital from January 2015 to January 2017. The patients were observed at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months after the surgery.

Results: Survival of pain complaints at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after endometriosis operation was 99.2%, 96.6%, 93% and 88.4% respectively. There was no significant correlation between post-operative pain survival and age of diagnosis (p=0.138), age of menarche (p=0.492), parity (p=0.110) and stage of disease (p=0.908). There was a significant correlation between post-operative medical therapy and pain complaints survival. Subjects who were given medication had a risk of 0.26 times (CI 95% 0.081-0.857) pain recurrence compared to those who were not.

Conclusion: Pain complaints survival were significantly associated with post-operative medical therapy, but not associated with age, age of menarche, parity and stage of disease.
