What Is Better Lupron Or IUD

What Is Better Lupron Or IUD

I have to make a decision between Lupron or IUD as the birth control pill is no longer an option for me. What does everyone feel is better for pain relief and elimination of growth?

Depo was an option given but not taken. It was a horrible drug for me 12 years ago and I swore I would never do it again. The Lupron shot was much better on my body. I don't remember to many side effects to Lurpon minus the hot flashes but I do remember Depo. Almost as bad as prednisone.

There are other options too. There's Depo Provera. There's Nexplanon. Be your own advocate. This means not being afraid to do serious research and find what's out there that your doctor isn't telling you about.

In my opinion i would choose IUD, Lupron is like going through chemo. It throws you right into menopause without any waring whats so ever. I had a really really rough time with the shots.

I was still having pain after my first lap. My doctor made me believe Lupron was the only option I had left. I heard such terrible things about Lupron even from a close friend so I turned it down. Luckily, I found out about excision surgery. I found an excision specialist and had stage IV endo excised. It was the best decision I've made.
