I have been receiving the injections since March this year and started the HRT in July. I really don't want to take the HRT but my gyno said that he wont prescribe the injections unless I take it because I am 43yrs. He said I am too young to go without HRT. I, and my body can deal with the side effects of the injections better than the side effects of the HRT. I find since taking the HRT I have backache, spots, pelvic ache, weight gain, thrush etc. I am so fed up I am seriously thinking of just not receiving any meds and trying to go it alone again. I have had endo for 7ish years, I have had pills, painkillers, laser treatment and injections over the years. Any advice would be appreciated please ladies.
