Hi, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos thyroidism almost a year ago. I have recently been suffering from uterine pain and scans have shown ovarian cysts, probably due to endometriosis. The consultant will not conduct key hole investigations due to a history of adhesions in my bowel. He has suggested a 3 month treatment of zoladex to see if this relieves the pain. My query is would you recommend this treatment given the effects on hormones, since I feel mine have only just settled down due to thyroid treatment. I am concerned about being in a temporary menopause! Also why would I inflict this on myself when they aren't Even sure if it is endometriosis? Could anyone relate to this or advise? Thanks in advance, Sarah
