I'm potentially starting on Zoladex in a month or so and I was wondering if anyone has been on it and what your experiences have been with them? Thank you in advance 😊

      Oestrogen commonly softens connective tissues it's mostly seen in pregnancy. In my case due to hyper mobility, being on oestrogen meant I had 14 chronic dislocations and 2 fractures in less than 9 months. I now have progesterone only tablets to prevent bleeding but I still get natural fluctuations in oestrogen which cause me to get mild dislocations - my latest was my knee just by walking upstairs. I have a family member who has no hyper mobility but during pregnancy her hips dislocate to the point of being in a wheelchair for the duration of the pregnancy. I had a bunch of things collide at once which resulted in me having dialysis for a while and they did some special treatment I can't remember what it was called which they gave me whilst doing the dialysis to help reduce the oestrogen in my blood but ultimately I had a year on high dosage of progesterone which essentially reduced the number of receptors my body had for oestrogen and reduced my production of it. I'm on a 3rd of the dosage now and I still have no periods and while I had hoped my joints would get better with less oestrogen, (the damage is done so I will have this level of tissue softness from now on), it has reduced my oestrogen being on progesterone.

      Are you using this leading up to surgery? I did alot of research on using Zoladex and decided against it so have no experience or advice in actually using it ❤️

        @AnnyaC If it stops my pain they would be looking at a hysterectomy. I've done a lot of research and come to the conclusion that I have to try it, I know it may not work and I know the lasting effects it can have but I only have a hysterectomy left for treatment options and this is how I find out if it will help me.

      No experience but knowing what I know now I wouldn’t take anything until I saw a functional practitioner. I had chronicle horrible debilitating periods since college and most of my root cause was hormone imbalance- specifically estrogen dominance which can be fixed. We are acidic human beings that make it hard to detox properly on a regular basis ( even excess hormones from foods, plastics, you name we have 100x what our parents and grandparents grew up with). This equals disease every day of the week.

        @MCADBox thank you for your input. Unfortunately I have tried various detox from hormones and had to majorly detox from oestrogen because all my connective tissues softened when on it. I have tried basically everything and this is the last thing to try to find out if a hysterectomy would solve my issues.

          @QueenOfPlants I’m sorry that’s awful side affects of the hormone balancing. Thanks for sharing I have talked to so many women about this and I never heard this. Can I ask what you tried? I have heard issues with bone mass and osteoporosis as a result, but never the softening of connective tissues. For detoxing since I am currently going through another one ( long term Candida overgrowth that started because of 14 years of birth control) and I have learned that my toxic load is apparently way larger than my body can handle so I a have had to find other ways to support my pathways and slow down a bit. A few things that have really helped have been castor oil packs overnight and even during the day with all the symptoms I’m having, grounding/earthing mats that help with my enormous amount of inflammation ( the silent killer that leads to more and more disease) and electrolyzes reduced water which is super helpful detoxifying agent but I have had to pull back a bit on this bed it’s working too well. There are ways to detox that are not traditional like the ones that I am using, but they work. You can also support with diet which complements this water really well. The mat and the water operate on the same via negative electrons that act as antioxidants which penetrate our cells help us detox, oxygenate the cells and give them the energy to act more fluidly instead of being stagnant and not functioning normally. I did a ton of research before trying all these as I have been told I’m a complicated case and my specialist said I’m one of worst she’s has treated ( during my last pregnancy we awful).
