I have PCOS and a mild case of endometriosis. I recently heard about taking Lupron to help shrink cysts/lesions. We have been trying to get pregnant for almost 7 years now. We cant afford IVF, so this seems like it is our last resort. Does Lupron help with PCOS as well as Endometriosis? One of my problems is that I dont ovulate very often. I dont have severe pain with my conditions either. I have some, but I also have a high pain tolerance. Does anybody have the same problems? Did Lupron work for you? Help!
it is a last resort med. what it esssentially does is put you in a pseudo-menopause state where your ovaried temporarily shut down. i like you tried for about 5 yearas and went on lupron but i have stage 4 endo. very painful and pretty much all over my lower organs bowel, bladder, kidney etc. surpisingly but not recommended i did get pregnant before i started the shot and had 2 rounds before they found my little miracle monster. and immediately stopped treatment and i had to see 3 doctors the remainder of my pregnancy to make sure it did not cause any birth defects or issues.
lupron is a treatment for endo not a pregnancy assist. i would love to know what all you tried and maybe i can help you find some ways yall haven't tried to help your chances.
because trust me i know how you feel you can read my bio to get a better idea of what i went through as well.
