I just got the first shot yesterday, and I do not plan on getting the other 2 shots.

After reading patient reviews, I was anxious about possible side effects. Talked to my doctor, she still highly recommended it. I got the first shot yesterday and fainted immediately after the injection, likely due to anxiety. No pain, swelling or itching at site of injection. Feel just fine today. I plan on getting the remaining shots.

Comment:
My daugther was 1 month before her 17 b-day for her first shot. She hadn't stasted her period as of that time. The day after her first shot she did. Her doctor said it was just a odd ball thing and not to worry. She hasn't had a period since it's almost been a year. Has anyone heard of this problem?

I started the treatment in January of 08. Got the last shot in July 08. I have had absolutely no problems or side effects. The only complaint would be burning and soreness at the injection site, but that's it
