    I was in the worst pain in my life. And I still believe it is the cause of the problems that I have continue to have. All relating to the Lupron. I would not use again for any reason.

    I had stage 4 Endo and had a mass removed from my colon that turned out to be Endo. I took 4 of the 6 shots and said I cant do it anymore. Please be aware of ALL side effects. I was told I would only get hot flashes. That is a LIE! Lupron is like putting posion in your body. I suffered from hot flashes, anxiety, panic attacks, high blood pressure (150/107), muscle aches, vomiting, blurred vision, ... Show Full Comment

    I have endo, fibroids, and ovarian cysts. First time I took it (monthly injection for 6 months), was symptom free for five years. Hoping for great results again this time (3-month dose taken twice). Get some hot flashes and night sweats but a small price to pay for the pain relief.

    I'm 35 years old and suffered from chronic pain on my right side that would radiate to my back. After about 5 pelvic ultra sounds I had one bad episode that sent me to the ER where they found that I had a cyst the size of a grapefruit on one of my ovaries. I had surgery to have it removed and once the doctor opened me up he said it was a mess inside. My inside was filled with a bunch of blood. ... Show Full Comment
