As the title suggest i've been on Decapeptyl monthly injections for 5 months and am having terrible problems with breakthrough bleeding. In month 1 i had a normal period, in month 2 i had a very light period, month 3 i had no bleeding, month 4 i had spotting for 5 days before my injection was due, and now in month 5 i am due my injection tomorrow but have been spotting for 2 days and am now getting the mild cramping i usually get before a period is due.
My consultant told me i shouldn't have any bleeding while i'm on the injections and it normally takes up to 3 months for periods to return after the injections but im sure if i did not get the injection tomorrow my period would arrive within the next few days so I phoned my consultant today and said something has to be wrong and im not sure if i should get another injection tomorrow if they are obviously not working properly so im waiting on him phoning me back.
Has anyone else ever experienced breakthrough bleeding with these jags?, i'm beginning to wonder if they are strong enough for me because i have been having the spotting plus ovarian twinges every month making me think my ovaries aren't as dormant as they should be.
My consultant has said that after the initial 6 month course he wanted me to stay on them for a further 6 months (12 months in total) but with HRT ad back next time but i think ill tell him i don't mind staying on gnrh injections but i would rather try a different one next time but what is my best option?, prostap maybe?.
