I was diagnosed with stage 4 Endometriosis 2 years ago i am 28 years old now and have had two laps - one diagnosis and one to laser the endo of my ovary's and bowel, i actually had one ovary stuck to my stomach wall due to the adhesions. The pain was so severe i was hospitalized on many occasions. After a lot of different treatment methods and trying to conceive attempts i decided to try Zoladex. I have to say besides the hot flushes etc it is the best thing ever and has completely changed my life. I have now been referred for IVf and am waiting for my first consultation. Does anyone have any advise on how this works - whether i will have to come off the Zoladex for 12 weeks before starting treatment or if it can be used as part of the IVF treatment as i am worried if i come off the injections the endo is going to get worse again and i cant risk the pain coming back.
