So background story: I have suffered severe heavy bleeding, pains, mood swings, severe depression and anxiety, headaches, joint pain for as long as i can remember. I started periods at 11 yeats old and ended up trying contraceptive pills due to the bad periods.
After many years i finally had scans, bloods, and nothing showed up, i then had a laproscopy in 2018 and it showed endometriosis not severe apparantley just in the pelvic region, they used a treatment called Helica and inserted a Mirena coil.
Symptoms improved for around 6 months but then returned with the bloating being extreme that i look pregnant everyday, i sometimes can't get out of bed, im signed off work, its taking a toll on mental health and relationships.
They've suggested zoladex injections every month for 6 months along with tibolone 1 per day during the 6 months.
Now the team didn't exactly explain any of this properly and I've been put off by the temporary menu pause side of thinhs and im scared about the bone density situation.
I am dairy intolerant too so i do worry about calcium levels as it is.
Can someone please maybe share their experience on being on this medication, and any insight to what it actually does, what happens after the 6months, if i should be seeing a gyne whilst i am taking it as it will only be done at my gp.
Thank you so much. ❤️
