I have been prescribed both in the past and haven't used either as I was concerned about the side effects, especially with Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne but my flow is out of control and I have endo in many places included bladder and rectum so that makes it worse. I have only used Naproxen for years for the pain but I have been beyond "managing" for a long time now, especially with the flow and I have also learned/realized that this treatment plan does not actually "treat" endo which… read more
I took Visanne for about 3 months. I’m opting to go back to Lupron Depot as I found it more effective for me. For Visanne I noticed that my hair shedded a lot more, and I was moodier. My already low libido was much lower too. Stopping Visanne I noticed I was sleeping better which means that Visanne was impacting my sleep but not that much. Lupron Depot had ALL of these side effects too, but I had significantly more pain relief from Lupron. So in my opinion if your pain isn’t tolerable it’s worth a shot. I do not have a period as I also have the Mirena IUD which stopped mine.
I took mirena a year ago which helped me a lot with the flow and length of my periods (it used to be high flow of 7 days long periods). However, it had been painful for me everyday nonstop since it was inserted. It was pai3and uncomfortable as the pain would not be triggered by anything, it just comes, day and night.
Since 1st April 2022, I started using Visenna and its been two days now. My periods came back a day after I removed mirena (30/03/2022) and I skipped a day then started with visenna. So far, my "old normal" menstruation is back - flow and my blood now smells very bad. Visenna brought me increased appetite and cravings. Cravings get worse at night. Mirena was horrific for me and I'm hopeful again with Visenna. I know God is with us, ladies. Let's keep pushing 💛
I've been on Aspen for 3 months now. Finally after 3 months, the pain is manageable but my periods are so messed up. Very long whereas before Apsen they were regular. I've also noticed my breast and stomach more fuller. Not bigger, just fuller.
I took vissane for 7 months after ablation surgery. It helped a loooooot but had to stop taking it as it gave me nodules on my right breast and have BCa history in my family.
Hope it works well for you
I had the 3 month dose of Lupron. The first 10 days were not great. My butt (injection site) really hurt! And then I had some pretty horrible cramps from day 5-10. After that I had some extra hair shedding. But nothing like Visanne. I didn’t notice sleep or mood issues beyond the first two weeks as my body adjusted. I have some nerve involvement with my endo and the Lupron treatment resolved years of tailbone and hip pain for me. I still have general pelvic pain and pain with intercourse but the hip and tailbone pain being gone has changed my quality of life. Right now I just have the IUD and am managing with the pain I have. If it becomes unmanageable I will be going back to Lupron.
