Zoladex followed by microgynon 30 ED

Hi, I'm hoping someone will help as my GP have given me no information and I'm so frustrated trying to get answers!

I had a laparoscopy in December to remove a large cyst from my ovary, whilst doing this they also found adhesions on my vowel and bladder.

To help control this the gyne put me on zoladex for 3 months. Once the 3 months were complete the gyne refered me back to my GP who have now subscribed me microgynon 30 ED.

firstly I'm wondering how long it will take for me to get my period as its been over 2 months since my last injection?

secondly my GP said I had to take 3 months worth of microgynon 1 after the other, but the 30 ED has 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills, do I not take the inactive pills?

No inactive pills mate,he sounds like he wants you to have the packs back to back for 3 months then have a bleed.

They like to limit your bleeds when you have endo.

Kind regards
