I had a laparoscopy because I was not able to get pregnant and the Dr. discovered moderate endometriosis. He immediately put me on Lupron for 6 months.

Comment:
I feel absolutely HORRIBLE on this drug. I just got my 2nd shot 3 days ago and have been so depressed that I don't feel like doing ANYTHING.
