LH RH injection

Has anyone had long term side effects after 3 month hormone therapy?

In between my 2 laparoscopy the surgeon suggested a 3 month injection to "dry up" for the following surgery.

It has now been 12 months since then and I still suffer from "fake menopause" effects like lack of libido and dryness. I am 30 and well away from the actual menopause and never suffer from any of it before my injection.

Has any of you found any solution? I will see the specialist again next week and I want to go there with a plan cause otherwise he always says it is in my mind... and it is not!

thanks ladies

Could you have blood test to check your hormone level so it is more subjective? It is rather rude to say you made it up!

I had similar injection in between my two operations too. I did not develop any menopause symptoms at the time or after.

Hope yours will go soon.
