    Hi Collette

    yes I did. I had breathlessness, pain in the legs, back, extreme tiredness and increased vaginal discharge. Let me know if you have any more symptoms and I can share my experience with you. 

    Take care

    Hi Collette

    I had achy shoulders/neck while on Esmya.

    I had breathlessness/fatigue but I am sure that was as a result of the anaemia I was suffering not the Esmya.

    It didn't reduce the size of my one large fibroid, but did stop my horrendous bleeding and was the only thing that got me through to a fibroid removal.

    I would take it again if offered to see me through to hysterectomy as my removal didn't cure the problem periods.

      Good luck Collette!

      I was hoping having my fibroid removed would be the end of the problem but my period is back heavy and clotting. I am also just waiting to have my womb removed.

      I found the side effects of the Esmya easier than the horrific bleeding/pain.

      I had an op last year to burn the lining of womb it stop the bad bleeding but left me with fibroids and bad pains, had a another one to try and get rid of the pains it worked for 2 months, then came back so seen doctor last said womb has to come out now, so give me Esmya to help pain but not sure about it now.

    Do you have heavy bleeding? Esmya should help with that while you are on holiday. It will also help to reduce the size of the fibroids, which will help if you are having a major operation. I am on my second pack of Esmya. I have multiple fibroids, and had very heavy bleeding. Esmya has stopped the bleeding. I felt a bit strange the first few days, but I am completely fine now. The body may take a little while to get used to things. The non-bleeding has made a huge difference for me. People seem to have different side effects though.
