I rarely post on here but have found it a valuable resource throughout my endo journey. Yesterday I had my first Zoladex injection. I asked the nurse what I could expect in the next few day and things to look out for. I am fully (and anxiously) aware of the common side effects of the menopause, however, she really wasn't able to tell me much. So, I’m reaching out to everyone who has had the injections/implant. The actual injection was painful for a little bit, but the stinging went away pretty quickly. This morning I feel quite achey, twingey and crampy, just below the entry point, which is where I assume the implant is placed. I don't know if this in normal. I stopped my pill yesterday as I was told not to take it with these injections. I asked if I should expect bleeding in the next few days, but was told that this would stop all periods. I have read on here that bleeding in the first few weeks can happen. If anyone could give me an idea of what is ‘normal’ to feel in the first few days I would be eternally grateful. Many thanks in advance.
