Phendo is an observational research study to establish a catalog of the signs and symptoms of endometriosis as experienced by you, people with endometriosis. In addition, opportunities to reflect upon your collected data may help you in managing your disease. Columbia University invites you to join this study about endometriosis to enhance understanding about the disease.
You can track your experience of endometriosis in Phendo at your convenience, track more or fewer signs, symptoms, and self management information, or stop tracking at any time.
You can find answers to frequently asked questions about Phendo here.
