Have pain in bone joints, seat bones and big knot in the stomach, with constipation and diahorrea. 3 months into treatment. Period stopped and plenty of hot flushes. Have not had this months injection. Will period return as only 43 yrs old
I found the following information for you in the literature:
If you are a premenopausal woman, Zoladex should cause your periods to stop during treatment. However, you must still use an effective barrier form of birth control (such as a condom or diaphragm with spermicide gel or inserts). Hormonal forms of contraception (such as birth control pills, injections, implants, skin patches, and vaginal rings) may not be effective during your treatment with Zoladex. After you stop using Zoladex, you should begin having regular periods again. Call your doctor if your normal periods do not return within 12 weeks after your Zoladex treatment ends.
For a list of side effects for Zoladex go to the following:
