I started taking the shot in August of 07 and took it until March of 08. I was pain free about 3 weeks after the initial injection and still am.

Comment:
I was put on Lupron because I'm starting IVF and this was suggested by the doctor because of my history with endometriosis.

I had Endometriosis for 9 years, since I was 20 years old, and during those years dcts in several states prescribed me every kind of pain killer imaginable..I hated that, I felt like I was dependent on those things.
