  • Zoladex shouldn't affect ur fertility, they also use zoladex to help ladies get preg I've been on it 3 times and my periods have returned as normal, the follow up appointment is usually to see how ur getting on post op etc xx

  • Hi there. I was on Zoladex for 6 months after a laparascopy, cyst removal and diagnosis like you. They don't normally prescribe it for more than 6 months because of bone thinning. When I was on it I didn't have any periods which was absolute bliss, only side effects were hot flushes and low libido. I was advised that the best time to get pregnant was after a laparoscopy and/or after a course of Zoladex because you're as 'clear' inside as you can be for a while, and fertility returns after about 2-3 months after Zoladex. Hope that helps.
