Gender is an important factor in pain modulation. Data show that men and women differ in response to pain, with increased pain sensitivity and many more painful diseases reported among women. Gender differences in pharmacological therapy and non-pharmacological interventions have been reported. Gender differences in pain and its relief come from the interaction of genetic, anatomical, physiological, neuronal, hormonal, psychological, and social factors which modulate pain differently in the sexes. Data show that a different modulation of the endogenous opioid system and sex hormones are influence pain sensitivity.

I use this pain scale to evaluate pain. It is used in many hospitals and medical settings.
