Information for the public

What has NICE said?

This procedure is safe enough and works well enough for use in the NHS.

What does this mean for me?

Your health professional should fully explain what is involved in having this procedure and discuss the possible benefits and risks with you. In particular, you should be told that your symptoms may not go away, or they may come back, that further procedures might be needed, and that the effects on fertility are uncertain. You should also be told how to find more information about the procedure. All of this should happen before you decide whether you want to have this procedure or not.

Your health professional may ask you if details of your procedure can be collected.

Other comments from NICE
