I've suffered with extremely painful periods since I first started at the age of 12! (I'm now 23) the doctors put me on mefenamic acid which worked but then I grew amune. Two years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis and told I needed surgery to try and help with it (plus I suffer with painful cysts) it helped loads I was pain free for a good year and a half then the periods became excruitating again and I even ended up being rushed into hospital. I felt like I'd gone back 18 months. Anyway, they now have suggested Zoladex injections. I have heard mixed stories and I'm scared. Me and my partner really want children. I'm booked in to talk to the doctors about it but does anyone have any experience???

Hi Rachel, I've just had my first Zoladex implant this week, I am surprised this has been suggested for you if you want to have children, I am 45 and my children are 20 and 11. The effect of the medical menopause does reverse when stopped, but I would discuss this again with your specialist. Hope this helps. X
Thank you. Half of me is considering trying for a child first and then having the treatment x
