just started prostap injections and dont feel well??

Posted , 2 users are following.

I started the injection 4 days ago due to very heavy and irregular periods.

Since having this injection ive had bloating really bad stomach cramps bad dirreah and my bleeding is worse, also my knee joints are so painful.

Has anyone else suffered like this or am i alone its making me not want another injection and i feel so emotional and moody.

Please say it gets better im only 28. Xxx

    Hi laura23643 I feel for u and having the injections at a young age. I've had 2 injections so far but only had some ache and pains plus headaches what can be really bad. I think u need to go and talk to your doctor be for your next injection as I'm not sure if it will get better. I think it gets to people in different ways. But I do no it's very hard to cope with.

      Hi Laura I understand what your saying I would deffo speak to your doctor defo if your wanting a baby. I'm diffrent as I'm not allowed to have any more but im 41 so getting to old anyway lol. When they told me that they are treating me like a 60 year old I got upset. That's when they told me I have Endometriosis.its so hard to get your head around things. But I looked it all up to. They've just got to sort out my tablets as the 1st lot gave me bagging headaches.

      Laura I understand about pain I go to bed in pain and wake up with it, even when I'm on morphine to help me. I can't eat as it hurts me. In My head I just have to plod on and cope with what I can. I just do t understand why I have to wait and see the gyni doctor until September.

      Hi Laura that's what I thought but I go every mth for my injections due to have next one on the 8th may. And in my doctor is there then the nurse will see him for me. When I go need to sort out the tablets as I had to come of the 1st lot. Just sick and tired of it all. Wish it was all over.
