I'm on esmya nearly 3 months and have to go to the hospital in October to see if my fibroids shrink. I pray they have because I won't be going back on them. The side effects are so bad first month I had chest pain I thought i was taken a heart attack. Then followed by major stomach pains that I still have. Then the head aches then the nausea I can't wait to come off them. They have me feeling terrible I think that the pain from the fibroids in the first place is noting conspired to being on esmya. My body cant take much more the side effects are too bad
