Zoladex for Endometriosis


Hi ladies i was just wondering whether any of you have ever had a 6 month course of Zoladex injections to treat endometriosis. I had my first Zoladex 3.6mg implant on 31st October and I'm due my 2nd on 28th November (I'll also start Livial/Tibolone then too)

I'm interested mainly in how long i can expect to wait before my periods return so we can get back on course. I've read about them never returning at all which is a little scary but i'm trying to forget that i ever read that

Hiya, I only had 1 zoladex injection- was prescribed a 3 month course but after speaking to my own consultant refused the next 2 injections- and it took my cycle 9 wks to return but that includes the 4 after the injection. Your cycle will return to normal those that don't tend to be of a menopausal age so just continue into the menopause.
Hope this reassures you a little x

Im your zolly queen, ive had 2 lots of 3month course and my period returned just less than 2 months. They have always returned and im due to start next week again and then the dreaded ivf cycle.

Watch out in the beg u get hit with a high estrogen and makes you all hormonal than the headaches and then the big one, this constant feeling of being dazed. In the end the estrogen leaves your body (low sex drive). However it does work and its all worth it in the end.

It gets better after the 1st month but you will feel different and its totally normal.

I did 6 months of Zoladex then started ttc once my cycle returned. It took 9/10 weeks from the last injection to have my first AF. The first month of the implants was awful but had some improvement after that (not having AF was the best bit!) Good luck x

(ttc since june 2010)

Hey you! I only had the one 3 month implant followed by an ivf cycle!
I had my period on time after the ivf cycle but i've noticed my ovulation has been later ever since! I've awlays ovulated on day 13-15 and after zolly it went to 17-20 !!!! Also, i had the fot waves and headaches throughout the ivf cycle and the cycle after... My private consultant warned me that it takes ages for it to get out of the system... Not sure if you will be ttc-ing on your own or with help after that, but bear in mind that if ifv-ing you will need much higher doses to stimulate...the NHS stuck me on zolly and i'm not sure it was a wise move for me! But for others it has worked! Fingers x-ed

Hi brumbar, did you have the 3-month Zoladex to treat endo or was it just part of your IVF cycle? I had one 3-month Zoladex injection in June 2011 and have been waiting for AF to return since Sep.... wondering if you knew anything about this as I'm getting a bit concerned...?

Hi I no this is an old post but I wanted to ask the same question, I read somewhere that you have to wait 12 weeks after zolly to start trying, but since reading that ive read wait 4 weeks because then it will be out of ur system and then start trying.

I want to start trying as soon as i can, im on the pill as well as zoladex so have to stop both, ive heard that you are more fertile immediately after coming off the pill but then some ppl find it takes ages for their fertility to come back to normal, i no there are no risks to getting pregnant immediately after coming off the pill but obviously fertility wise i want it to be perfect timing. also some ppl say after zolly they were super fertile and other say it took months for it to return. So i guess my question is when do i come off the pill, i have a few options
1) the day of my last injection to give my body 4 weeks without the pill
2) 4 weeks after my last injection to coincide with my zolly being out of my system
3) now so that my body has 3/4 months with no pill

I duno its all confusing, need to speak with dr on friday when i go for my third, il be half way thru then
