I was diagnosed with endometriosis in Spring of 2013. Lupron honestly saved my life! For 6 months I felt normal. My pain was gone and I took control of my life back. I started out on the monthly depot. Not sure of the side effects etc., I wanted to play it safe. First month was a little ruff. I had body aches for few days, hot flashes, and night sweats. Second month my Dr. prescribed me th ... Show Full Comment

I dont care what anyone says, I love the lupron shot! It is the only thing that has taken away the pain and constant heavy bleeding. My only wish is that they come up with something that can be taken continuously and not just in 6 month intervals. Yes I did have side effects like hot flashes and decreased breast size but I would gladly take that over severe pain and constant horrible bleeding!

Comment:
I suffered from severe endometriosis. I had two surgeries, the second surgery it completely covered my ovaries. Dr. suggested Lupron Depot shots (I actually had 4 months of it). I am now divorced earlier than I had planned (I planned on doing it in the future, but not at the moment) and I know it is because of this drug. I am a very logical person. While receiving these shots, I seriously was not ... Show Full Comment
