This prospective study aimed to evaluate the suitability of the Endometriosis Health Profile-30 Questionnaire (EHP-30) as a self-report health status instrument. We compared our results with those from the U.K. and the U.S. and discovered relationships between the EHP-30 and patient characteristics. The results showed that the EHP 30 questionnaire is a user-friendly self-report tool suitable for use in endometriosis-related clinical research.
