Feeling helpless

I am a 40 year old female and as a result of severe bleeding and pmdd my gynaecologist has given me gnrh injections. He gave me a 1 month injection to start, followed by a 3 month injection (about a month ago). I am also on the hrt drug tibolene. I had a period last month, which was horrendous) due to the time the injection had been given in my cycle, however, I have now been bleeding for about 11 days and I'm distended. Is this normal?. I'm feeling really fed up at the moment.

Thanks angela

Sorry no great advise but good luck I understand all the horrid feelings your going through. I'm at a stage where no treatments seems to help - if anything they make me feel worse!

I hope it settles soon for you


Hi, I would get this checked out I only had 2 x 1 month cycles injected then stopped due to strong adverse effects but my period stopped straight away and of my long list of side effects I did not get bloating/ distension.

Worth also googling the PIL patient info leaflet to see if it is listed. If not you can use the yellow card website to add it as a side effect

Thank you. I have made an appointment fir Thursday with my gynaecologist as I am still bleeding with clots and I look 9 months pregnant! I'm at the end of my tether. X

Good luck, let us know how it goes x
