Abstract: OBJECTIVE. Evaluate pain and depression scores before and after multi-professional group intervention in women with endometriosis as compared to those who did not participate in this activity. METHODS. A total of 128 women attended at the Endometriosis Outpatient Facility CAISM/UNICAMP, was assessed and distributed equally into two groups: women who received group intervention and those who did not. All women completed the Beck Depression Inventory and the Analogical Visual Scale. RESULTS. There was a significant decrease in pain and depression scores at the end of group intervention. Women who had not participated in the intervention had higher initial scores of pain when compared to those who had. On the other hand, in the group without intervention, depression scores were lower. A positive correlation was identified between pain and depression in both groups. CONCLUSION. Group intervention was efficient in diminishing pain and depression in women with endometriosis and may be included in the conventional treatment for patients affected by this disease.
