Endometriosis is a chronic conditions and happens when cells similar to the ones in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body.

Around one in ten women in the UK have endometriosis with 10 per cent of women worldwide suffering with the condition.

One of the main symptoms of the condition is painful cramps, which are caused by spasms of the pelvic floor muscles.

Many women take pain killers and will use physiotherapy to help soothe their symptoms.

Celebrities such as comedian Amy Schumer and former Love Islander Molly-Mae-Hague have recently opened up about their battle with the illness.

Experts at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development conducted a small clinical trial that found women could get 'meaningful' pain relief from botox.

The experts administered thirteen women with 100 units of onabotulinumtoxin.

This was injected into the pelvic floor muscle spasm areaa.

Over a year after the injection, the patients were then monitored for pain intensity, muscle spasm and disability.

At the end of the year the pain medication the patients were on was also reassessed.

Before the injections, 11 of the 13 women had been suffering with spasms caused by the endometriosis.

Eight weeks after the injection, participants reported that the spasms were less prominent and less widespread.

Eleven of the women said their pain was 'absent or mild' and seven out of thirteen said they had reduced their pain medication.

Disability increased in six out of the eight women and relief lasted five out of the eleven months in seven patients.

The experts said: “These findings suggest pelvic floor spasm may be a major contributor to endometriosis-associated pelvic pain.

“Botulinum toxin injection may provide meaningful relief of pain and associated disability.”
