This has been a horrible medication that I would never recommend, nor will I take it again. I had two injections, one in June and the other in September of 2013.

I've had severe joint and ... 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!
