Induced menopause before lap

staylo212 profile image

Im 23 years old and have been suffering for nearly 3 years with suspected endometriosis, I have been told that to have the lap done I would need to lose a lot of weight and have been slowly but surely been working on it with the endo diet and light exercise but i am still a long way away. My pain has been so bad i havent been able to go to work or uni or even get out of bed and my gyno has suggested to have the menopause jag. I was wondering if others feel this would be a good idea, I have done some research but still feel unsure about the situation and dont know anyone else in similar situations. Thanks for reading and any advice would be great.

Good morning, I had a 6 month course of Prostap injections. They works a treat for me, no pains whatsoever. I did suffer from hot flushes but this was more welcome than the pain I had been suffering. I was given Livial add back Hrt to help with the hot flushes. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has the option.
