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 suffered from hot flashes, anxiety, panic attacks, high blood pressure (150/107), muscle aches, vomiting, blurred vision, ... Show Full Comment

I'm 35 years old and suffered from chronic pain on my right side that would radiate to my back.

Comment:
I have been dealing with increasing pain and bleeding during menstrual cycles for the last 6 years. I thought that it was a normal process of getting older (my mother had similar issues).

I sought advice again when I started blee ... Show Full Comment
