|Title||Sex Differences in Abdominal Pain|
Experimental and clinical studies highlight the existence of sex-related differences in the perception of and responsiveness to painful stimuli. Sex-related differences in pain processing and responsiveness in general have been documented in experimental studies using animal models, and pain is experienced differently by men and women. Sex-related differences have also emerged in the search for new IBS-specific medications.
