Pain is a sensoric stimuli that can be affected by COX-2. Some studies found that 25-Hidroxy-Vitamin D3 serum level has the ability to affect COX-2 serum level and modulate pain sensation. The aim of this study is to analyze correlation between 25-Hidroxy-Vitamin D3 and COX-2 serum level in patient with adenomyosis. This was an analytical observational study. Subjects were women diagnosed with adenomyosis who met the study criteria (n = 35). Their 25-Hidroxy-Vitamin D3 and COX-2 serum level were measured
