I know how you feel about the doctors not caring and looking at you like you can not be in the much pain you must be lying sort of thing.

I am so sorry you are having trouble.

The only thing I can suggest is to keep going back to the doctors or if it gets really bad to call nhs direct or go to A&E.

If you need to talk you can message me.



I was on Zoladex for two years which puts you into a medically induced menopause meaning you have no periods - I suspect this is the kind of thing you mean.

I too got very concerned as I went months and months and months after stopping the treatment with no return of my periods. I was told I may have gone into a permenant menopause and I was scared.

My periods eventually returned. They are still hit and miss. I had my first period then missed a month and then had another.

It took over 15 months after stopping the treatment for my periods to return. I was on the treatment a long time, longer than most people which is probably why it took soo long. Waiting 5 months isnt anything to worry about in itself - although I know that is no help to you when you are in pain. Could you speak to your GP about pain relief?

P.S. I just wanted to say, you say you were trying for a baby for two years - you should never try to get pregnant while on these kind of hormone treatments, they can be very dangerous to a fetus. Now your treatment has stopped it is fine to try, but if you go back onto anything again please check with a doctor before trying for a baby as it can be dangerous.
