Comprehensive module which is very pertinent to general practice. Adherence to the content of this module should result in decreasing referrals to secondary care. Only real indication for referral would be fertility issues.
Question 4 in post-module test is badly written. 'Mainstay' of treatment is governed by what patient wants i.e. pregnancy or contraception/reduction of endometrial hyperplasia. The answer to this question assumes patient wants pregnancy.
