Coming off Prostap - Symptoms

Hey everyone, i was put on Prostap injections in jan for 3 months, i felt the best i have for years (if you ignore nightsweats, hot flushes etc) however the gyno said 3 months is enough for me as im only 25 and dont want to cause any unnecessary damage. Its been 8 weeks today since my last injection, so technically 4 weeks since *coming off* the prostap. I am still having all the menapause side effects and havnt had a period yet, but also suffering now from really bad depression. I have had depression before, years ago, but this is the worst iv ever felt. I am getting pain back, feel nauseous all the time which im not taking medication for, i am so tired and putting on a fake smile at work for 11 hours a day is getting too much for me. I am an emotional wreck and feel like im pushing all my family and friends away, I only got married last year - my husband doesnt deserve to come home from work to a depressed wife who just wants to be asleep everyday.

Has anyone else suffered from depression whilst coming off the menapause? & how long did it take for everyone to get their first period afterwards?

Thanks in advance
