PRE-EMPT: preventing recurrence of endometriosis by means of long-acting progestogen therapy

Endometriosis, a condition in which cells similar to those within the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body, commonly the pelvis, costs the UK almost £3 billion a year. To relieve pain, areas of endometriosis are often removed surgically, but symptoms can recur. Drugs that lower oestrogen levels can prevent regrowth, and medicines containing other hormones such as progestogen may have the same effect. In this large randomised controlled clinical trial, women undergoing surgery for endometriosis will take long-acting progestogens, receive long-term treatment with the oral contraceptive pill, or have no treatment. The aim is to determine which treatment may be most effective in terms of symptom relief, side-effects, acceptability and costs.
