Medical and self-care advice for NHS Lothian patients with endometriosis during the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is a source of significant worry and uncertainty for everyone. However, we understand that if your medical care has been affected then this time may feel even more challenging for you. Therefore, with support from the Oxford Endometriosis team (thank you Oxford!), we have put together this information resource, to both guide you with regards to some of the current recommendations on medical treatments and to offer some strategies for the management of some of the associated symptoms. The recommendations fall under the ‘themes’ below.

Within this guidance, we use the terms ‘woman’ and ‘women’. However, we acknowledge that it is necessary for all assigned female at birth (not only those who identify as women) to access evidence-based care in order to maintain their gynaecological health and reproductive wellbeing.
