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.

Symptoms

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.

"We have used LocumDeck for a number of months now and find it really useful when booking locums. You can see the availability of GPs, their documents are all loaded on the site and you can book instantly – it takes minutes to do. There are also no expensive locum agency fees to pay – just the GP’s actual payment. It's quick and hassle-free."
