Good evening ladies....i thought I would share my good and positive (painful) news....my period has finally arrived after waiting 8 long months since my last prostap injection
So, last July was my last prostap injection, after my last gynae appt 2 weeks ago I was told on my next appt i would have tests to see why my period hadn't yet arrived. I have been worrying so much particularly the past few months seeing as nothing had "kicked in" Last friday at work I thought I had gone back in time pre-laps, pre-prostap and was having period pains like id not had in a good 18months - the cramps, shooting pain, sickness, light headedness etc. all weekend I waited thinking I was going to have more than symptoms but no, nothing. This morning though my prayers were answered and there was my period! It has been painful but after so much worrying it is worth it
Since my last injection the pain has been present but manageable, the worst part of the past few months have been the usual - bloating, spots, tiredness, increased pain on enjoying life....I thought I would share my experience in the hormoneless months for those who have had prostap/zoladex and are waiting for their cycle to arrive or those that are going through it and wonder how long it will take and what to expect whilst waiting. I know I was always researching the average length of time at which they would return and was beginning to worry big time!
I hope all you ladies have had a relatively pain free weekend xx
