Life after Progestin- marriage in jeopardy

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed with endometriosis 11 years ago, and started on a progestin medication. Controlled the symptoms well, and helped a great deal. During my time on this medication I started dating, then got married.

I stopped my progestin last month, and now I feel like a different person.

I want to start over. It feels like I've been settling. Dead-end job, irresponsible husband who can't keep promises. My ambition and sense of adventure has come alive in a way I haven't felt since before the progestin.

My question to you all, is are there others who have gone through this? Is this a common reaction to stopping progestin? Should I wait, and not make any rash decisions at this time?

I'd really love to hear from people who have stopped progestins, and what they felt at that time.

Progesterone treatment does not seem to agree with me at all, I've always felt better when I've come off it. I don't feel like 'me' on it, I'm down, tearful, angry and just don't enjoy life at all. Progesterone treatments and me have never got on so I can imagine how you're feeling having come of it after so long xxx

Did you stay the same from the first month off, or did it balance out at a later time? I'm trying to figure out if how I'm feeling now is temporary. I'd really appreciate knowing that, or if you're comfortable sharing how it affected your relationships.


I stayed the same after coming off it, felt like me again. It really doesn't agree with me and I'd avoid progesterone treatments in future for that reason. I wasn't good on them at all xxx
