Starting to feel at a complete loss now. I received my first prostap injection on 18th March and was told that was the best treatment to avoid going down the surgical route (I am not the one avoiding it and would rather have the surgery). I was told I wouldn't have periods and would therefore have 4 months worth of relief, I started feeling my usual symptoms of a period a week ago but thought everything would be OK, but low and behold, I have came on my period today and experiencing lighter cramping but still cramping none the less. My GP can't see my until next Monday unless I go in at 8am every morning to try and wait for an available appointment, I contacted the gyno unit at my hospital but was number 22nd in the queue so didn't want to wait.
What on Earth am I supposed to do now? All it says online is to contact my doctor as I shouldn't be having my period, which is also a week earlier than it would have been anyway! Does anyone have any advice because I'm half tempted to just go and wait in A&E as I'm so concerned that something really isn't right.
Did anyone else have a period whilst on these injections? They made me so I'll for 3 days after I had them to the point I couldn't keep anything down, not even water and was prescribed anti sickness tablets which is making me think my body really isn't adjusting well and maybe these injections just aren't right for me.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as each set back like this just destroys me mentally. I'm almost 29 with no kids but have suffered 3 miscarriages and have never successfully been pregnant (I've had no abortions and my smears and STI testing has always been clear).
Why is there just no support for us women to be able to go to without having to feel like we are having to physically fight these medical professionals!
