    I was given lupron in 1994 and it was a horrible experience. I was given lupron again in 2008 and a hormone ring and the hormone addition made a big difference.The first 4 shots, I felt great, have some bone and muscle pain but it is manageable.

    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. I was already depressed because of the two years of unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant. Lupron made the depression deepen severely. I also had the late day headaches (which were crushing), insomnia (for the first time in my life), and most o ... Show Full Comment
