    Daughter was given Lupron because her growth was stunted due to hypothyroidism, doc wanted to delay puberty to give her more time to grow. First three month dose didn't seem to stop her puberty, so doc ordered increased dose. Result was that she almost immediately became moody, cried for no reason, eventually became depressed with suicidal thoughts. We're talking about a ten year old here. ... Show Full Comment

    I had the 3 month shot for suspected endo. My heavy periods completely stopped with the first shot and pain during sex decreased a lot. The drug did exactly what it was suppose to do, and most of the side effects (I also took that add-back) were very minimal: only a few hot flashes, that weren't as bad as people made them out to be, some acne and trouble sleeping. The worst side effect was the ... Show Full Comment

    I started on Lupron Depot- Leuprolide 11.25mg 3 month injection April 23rd, 2015. My OB believes I have endometriosis after MRI scan and ultrasounds showed nothing, he's basing this off of the symptoms which I have almost every system of endo. It took away my pain, no periods for the last 2 of the 3 months. Only symptoms I was grateful to have were minor- some acne, tired all the time, & ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 27 and I found out I had stage 3-4 severe endometriosis last year. I had all the horrible symptoms for endo but I honestly just thought it was normal for me. One night, I woke up with terrible, terrible pain in my lower abdomen. Turned out I had grapefruit sized cysts INSIDE both of my ovaries and they were leaking blood into my abdomen. I had emergency surgery to break open the cysts and ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 53 and have endometriosis. I've taken Lupron for a year now. It stopped my period. It has helped me tremendously give me a life back as my periods were so incapacitating with the heavy bleeding and PMS/bloating beforehand for years and year except during pregnancies. The downside is the constant hot flashes and night sweats. I also have mood swings,a lot of memory loss and achy hip bon ... Show Full Comment
