Latest endometriosis NG73 guidelines from NICE

This is a new guideline from NICE on managing endometriosis. I’ll do a general summary of this as it is a new guideline. However I don’t think it changes very much that we do. There is a good algorithm attached to the summary.


We should be suspecting endometriosis in women (even young women under 17) who present with at least 1 of:

  • dysmenorrhoea affecting daily activities and quality of life.
  • deep dyspareunia.
  • chronic pelvic pain.
  • cyclical GI or urinary symptoms (eg painful bowel movements, dysuria or haematuria).
  • infertility if there is also 1 of the above.

Advising women to keep a pain and symptom diary can aid diagnosis.

"I started my career as a locum last year a week after CCT. I strongly agree with the doctors who praise the NASGP team. If there is no NASGP, there would be no GP locum called Dr Darshanie Seneviratne.

The team is absolutely amazing especially Dr Richard Fieldhouse, Ali Lewis and Jacqui Gumbrell – all providing unbelievable support to us. I've never seen such urgent assistance from any other team at any point in my career. For example when one of my invoices was delayed by a month and a half, Ali was incredibly supportive. It is a very good strength for us as we have support with any issues. I would like to stay with this amazing team forever. God bless them!"
