Funny that your onc says weight gain is a side effect. WE all know it is, but they tend to say that it doesn't. I developed some dryness "down there"...my RN said about 1/3 have no chance, 1/3 get discharge and the other 1/3 get dry. I never skipped a beat with periods, stayed very regular. That may depend on age.
I did gain weight, about 5# a year on average...but it took a good 6-9 months before I noticed anything at all. Eating junk like Taco Bell does not help either....not part of the weight loss plan! I had no hot flashes or any other side effects....but keep in mind that we all feel the impact differently. Just hope for the best and start counting down! I just finished my 5 years in June and feel no different by being off of it.... before you know it 5 years will be over!
