Background. Deep dyspareunia, a common symptom in endometriosis, has previously been associated with bladder or pelvic floor tenderness (BPFT), which suggests a role for central nervous system sensitization. The Central Sensitization Inventory (CSI, 0-100) is a validated self-reported scale for patients with central sensitization. The objective of this study was to phenotype deep dyspareunia using BPFT and the CSI.
