    Hi, sorry you had such side effects on Esmya, I have the flushes and sweats but generally no pain, and as it stop the bleeding and starts to shrink the fibroids I feel it is worthwhile.

    It's great that you got through the pregnancies with them too, can't imagine what it's like having the fibroids AND a foetus in there!

    Wish you luck with the surgery.

    Goodness! So sorry you're having all those symptoms. I'm struggling a bit with ESMYA too but not on the same scale as you and certainly no chest pains which would have definitely made me stop taking it too. I had a few sweats, headaches and dizziness first few weeks. I'm coming to the end of week 5 - my main issue has been near constant bleeding, heavy first 2 weeks and heavy again last 7-8 days with bad pains, flooding and clots. I'm sure it's another period. Plus, overwhelming fatigue.

    Hysterectomy sounds like it may be the right decision for you. I think there's only so much we can tolerate with various different procedures esp when they don't have the desired effect.

    Good luck in September.

    Wow your doctor is right you are truly a rare one . I understand having one or two but 4 is a miracle . I think hysterectomy is a good option for you i had hot flushes with esmya and pain in my hips joint but I can relate to the symptoms you are having since I got that same symptoms from tranezamic acid and had to stop it . I wish you all the best in your next step
