I have recently been put onto Decapeptyl to help treat potential endometriosis. I had a 4 week injection and I go hot flushes, excessive sweating, insomnia, no sex drive, vomitting etc but the pain in my pelvis did seem to be better. Now I'm onto my second injection but this one lasts for three months. My partner is very understanding of my symptoms but I feel horrible and down - we've tried having sex but he seems to be too 'big' for me now(it's been a while). I'm going through a lot of stress just now. My work are putting me through the ringer because of my absences. I've been pulled into investigations and been disciplined for having a long term illness(I also have stress related ibs) and they just don't seem to understand the pressure they're putting on me. This on top of the injections that have given me menopause like symptoms have left me feeling depressed. I'm only 25 and I feel like my life is at a stand still. Does anyone have any advice on how they've dealt with similar situations? I know it could be much worse but I don't feel like myself at all just now and don't know what to do.
