I have pretty severe endometriosis to the point where the endo was into my bladder and causing me to have to go to the bathroom 11+ times a day, sometimes not making it. I'm only 32 so this was totally unacceptable. Started out as bladder infections about 5 years ago, turned into bladder pain, birth control kind of helped but my blood pressure would go through the roof and on my period weeks I ...

Comment:
Prescribed series of 3 shots for treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids before scheduled hystorectomy. Stopped menstrual cycle and cramps which was great. However, severely compromised my mental stability. After second shot I developed extreme anxiety/panic attacks, unable to eat or sleep, hot flashes/flushes, electric shock/fluttering feeling in my heart and acne. Declined 3rd shot an ...
