Endometriosis - what's new and important

Simon Edmonds and Michael Wynn Williams discuss improving the diagnosis and management of endometriosis in New Zealand through early recognition of symptoms, empowering primary health care practitioners to make a suspected diagnosis and commence management along with appropriate and timely referral to specialists.


Defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the endometrial cavity, endometriosis is a common condition. Estimates of 1 in 10 New Zealand girls and women, transgender or non-binary female assigned at birth are expected to have endometriosis in their reproductive years. 

The cause of endometriosis is likely to be multifactorial with genetic and familial factors playing a role. Clinical presentation may be variable with dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, IBS and fertility issues present, though approximately one third are asymptomatic.
