Period after Lupron Shots!!!

Jondall posted:
I was on lupron for 9 months, one month shots, then started 3 month doses. My last shot was last year in July, and it lasted til October, but since then I have had no periods. My periods stopped while I was on the medicine, and have never started again. I still feel aches and pains in my joints, and still have hot flashes. I'm wondering if the medicine is still in my body, even though its been over 7 months. Has anyone else experienced this, and how long did it take to get your period? Not sure if I need medication to bring back my period, has that also happened to anyone out there? Thanks for your time and knowledge on this. Heidi.

that can very well happen which is why i never suggest the 3 month shots because it is a guess as to how long it will take your body to process. some women have the issue it wears off too earl and some have your issue where it seems to just stick with them. but that time has passed so i would suggest talking to your doctor about your concerns and they may put you back on birth control to trigger and start your period. it will also help keep the endo under control.

have they scheduled you for a lap yet to see how the lupron helped?
