I would rather put up with the discomfort of endometriosis than feel like ... Show Full Comment

This is my 4th month on the shot. Yes, the side effects are there if you concentrate on them enough. But after having suffered for 15 years with Endo, 5 surgeries and years of TRYING to get pregnant, I am at "peace with my pelvis" for the first time since early teenage years. No periods, no pain at all. I am told that it only safe for 6 shots.. I dread getting OFF the shot. It has been a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took this for 5 months after a lap for endometriosis. It's hard for me to tell whether it helped the pain, because I subsequently developed a bladder condition that has been causing me a lot of pain. But the Lupron was a horrible experience that is still having a huge negative impact on my life. The first two months weren't too bad, just lots of nausea. Then the mood swings, depression, ...
