ENDL is an observational research study to understand how menstrual-related symptoms and pain influence quality of life. Columbia University invites you to join this study about the menstrual cycle, pain, and quality of life to enhance understanding about the menstrual cycle and related symptoms.
You can take daily surveys about your pain, period, and factors related to quality of life using ENDL at your convenience. You can also take longer monthly surveys about your overall quality of life at your convenience.

Our research is approved by Columbia University's Institutional Review Board (IRB).
First you will download the ENDL app. You will be able to join the study after signing the consent form. We will ask you to answer a short (about 1 minute) daily survey every day for at least 90 days. We will ask you to answer a longer (about 10 minutes) monthly survey every month for at least 3 months. All information collected will be stored separately from user name using an id number.
Privacy and security of data tracked through ENDL are important to the research team. All data collected through the app is stored on HIPAA-certified servers. Only members of the research team are able to access your data, and your data is used for research purposes only.
At this time ENDL is available only for the iPhone.
