Prostap. Spotting & Hormones!

I've wrote on here a few times and always find the support helps me get through tough times. I started my prostap last Tuesday, after a lot of conversations with family members who have endo, my boyfriend and on the site. It wasn't something I've done lightly. I want children and after being told it's possibly not going to be an option for me, the thought of putting myself through the menopause no matter how temporary doesn't appeal to me. Although neither does carrying on with this pain. My endo has become so aggressive since I had it lasered during my diagnosis lap. I don't get any relief days anymore. I've been sent to a&e twice in the last month, and visited my gp 9 times. So I went ahead with it despite my reservations.

I wasn't ready for it to kick in so soon. From Wednesday I've become a different person. I've literally never been so psychotic in my life. My poor boyfriend can't do anything right. Think it's shocked him aswell since I'm usually the laid back one. I'm hormonal, depressed & still in pain. I've no appetite, had headaches & constant back pain. I understand that sometimes it's got to get worse before it gets better but I'm not sure how much longer I can cope with it..

Its been 8 years now, and at 23 I can't even work. Cause I lost jobs because of endo, down to too much time off. I've had a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy (both thought to be endo related). I've lost my first love. Luckily I've found a guy who is so understanding, but even he's been tested recently. And sex nowadays either means more pain or blood in my urine. I've backed out of friends/family parties. Even just a brew with my best friends get cancelled around 3 times before we find a day I'm well enough. I don't know what else to do than pump more drugs into my body which never actually really numb the pain completely they just numb me through it and turn me into the walking dead. So I need to find something that works for me. And I'm hoping in the long run the pros out weigh the cons. I've now been referred to an endo specialist aswell so hopefully thats a step in the right direction.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the symptoms of prostap so soon? If it got better for you? I'm also spotting, is this normal?

Any advice would be muchly appreciated.
