Hi I'm in the U.K. With pcos diagnosed 5 years ago and endo diagnosed last year. Had most contrceptive pills had the mirina coil and the hospital gynaecology put me on Yasmin (6months) this has caused me really tearful and low mood, and pain has been worse for last 2 months and bleeding is worse. Been back to the gynaecologist and they have now said they want me to go on Zoladex and Everol 50 patch to combat the hot flushes.
Now I agreed to this and have the prescription form as I asked what the side effects were and he said mainly hot flushes which the Everol is supposed to counteract. Upon reading online about zoladex the side effects seem horiffic and the mood and depression something I suffer from currently I am worried is going to be worse with this along with the headaches I currently get with takin the combined contraceptive.
I would be grateful if anyone could give me any information or experience of taking this medication and the side effects. I am not seeing my gynaecologist for another 6 months now so I am now panicking about what to do give it a try or .... I'm worried it will make me have time off work which I cannot afford to do!
