I'm hoping to get some advice before my next hospital appointment.
I've recently had a laparoscopy and was told straight after that I had endometriosis and the only chance of getting pregnant was IVF. The doctor also said that they were going to put me on Zoladex for 3 month first.
My next appointment isn't for another 6 weeks so I've been researching Zoladex as much as I can and I can't see any why they would put me on this. As far as I can see it doesn't stop the endometriosis, it only halts it for the period you're having the injections, so surely it would be better to go straight into IVF.
Has anyone had any experience with this injection and/or know the reason for having this before IVF?
From what I can remember (I was still pretty groggy from the anaesthetic) they said my ovaries were covered in endometriosis and tucked behind something. I'll get more information when I have my follow up appointment I hope.
That's great news you didn't have any of the other horrible side effects I've read about, and without HRT.
Let me know how you get on with IVF, all the best. Thanks again for the advice xx
