Update information

Update information

April 2024: We have reviewed the evidence and updated some recommendations, and made a recommendation for research, on treatment of endometriosis when fertility is a priority. These recommendations are marked [2017, amended 2024]. We have also amended the heading 'Surgical management when fertility is a priority' to 'Management if fertility is a priority' to recognise that this section also covers non-surgical options.

Minor changes since publication

December 2021: We amended the recommendations on referral to clarify that women with endometriosis outside the pelvic cavity should be referred to a specialist endometriosis centre. We will not make further changes to the guideline. For more information, see the surveillance report.

December 2019: We added links to our patient decision aid on hormonal treatment for endometriosis.
