    I have severe Endometriosis & Adenomyosis, and I have been on this medication for 4 years. I've had multiple endometrial tissue removal surgeries and was taking various hormone therapies for 20 years (with terrible results) prior to taking this medication. My periods typically lasted 15-30 days prior to this medication, and now they last about 10-15. I still have very heavy bleeding with l ... Show Full Comment
