I am so relieved to have found this group, I have been feeling lost and terrified for months now. I'm new here so please forgive the wordiness. Hope everyone is having as good a day as possible and that it gets better and better!!
Really really would like to hear your experiences - I have a 2cm submucosal uterine fibroid (hanging into the womb) which has been wreaking havoc on my life since it was discovered 4-5 months ago. My gyn put me on Synarel nasal spray to induce menopause (he was very convinced the periods would stop), periods went mental and it didn't work. He then have me a 1m Prostap injection and I had two blissful weeks of no bleeding. Then like clockwork, the period started again (with this fibroid it now tends to last around 2 weeks or more, with the heavy bleeding confined to the first week but continuous bleeds and cramps on other days). During that period I was given the 3m injection. The period hasn't ended and I am giving up all hope of this chemcially induced menopause actually happening. I feel like a freak and am really scared there is something very wrong if there is bleeding despite the prostap. I wanted to know if anyone else has had this experience while on Prostap for fibroids?
This whole experience of the fibroid is like living in a nightmare, which is bad enough, but the fact that the medication which seems to work for most (my dr said again I shouldn't have any further bleeding) is not working for me is making me spiral into an incredible depression or sadness or something which I am so tired of feeling.
Wish all of you all the very best of health xxx
