Recruitment to FEMME has now closed.

 Overall, recruitment to FEMME went better than anticipated and we surpassed our sample size of 216 and, in total, randomised 254 women to FEMME.

FEMME was not an easy trial to recruit to and I am indebted to you for all your time and efforts in supporting the FEMME trial. Every woman who was screened or invited to take part in FEMME matters and I can’t thank you enough for all your efforts.

So we can get the best picture of how UAE and Myomectomy affect the quality of life of women with uterine fibroids I’d be very grateful if you would please continue to fill in data collection forms, take bloods, and encourage the participants to complete and return their questionnaires as these become due.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact Bill, the trial coordinator, by email ( or telephone (0121 414 8335) if you have any questions whatsoever.
