Has anyone been put on Danazol to treat their endometriosis? I have previously tried the pill and norethisterone with no luck. Yesterday I was given a presciption for Danazol as apparently I am running out of things to try, I was also given Mefenamic Acid for the period pain as well.
My past history is that I have always had very bad painful periods with clotting and leakage, a GP when I was 17 said that it was part of life - get over it, so I have tried to cope best as I could. Two days every month I have stay indoors otherwise I leak everywhere. Last year I took up jogging and a diet, a lump appeared on my caesarean scar so I was booked in to have a "hernia" treated by surgery. Had my operation, lump removed and when I went back for a checkup was told that it was endometriosis. 6 months later and it feels like another lump has come back in the same place and I am now experienecing a lot of pain at the top of my thigh running downwards with pins & needles, stabbing pains in my right ovary accompanied by pain in the lump. Painkillers and a hot water bottle seem to be a major part of my life at the moment and it starting to really debilitate my life.
Anyway enough rambling, Danazol... How common are the side effects? I really don't my voice to change or my boobs to shrink!
