Would you try Lupron again? Why or Why Not?

Would you try Lupron again? Why or Why Not?

Hello All,

I wanted to ask a few questions about some concerns I have about @@Lupron injections. I've had pelvic pain for over ten years, and I was officially diagnosed with stage 3-4 endometriosis last year at 26 after three years of pelvic floor dysfunction. I had significant large endometriomas on my right ovary, some damage to my left, endo on my ligaments, some on my bladder, and endo on my cul-de-sac. My gyno who is an endometriosis specialist put me on a combined… read more

Anyone had a 9cm endometrioma?

Anyone had a 9cm endometrioma?

Have a left endometrioma 9cm. Am currently on Aygestin in the hopes of shrinking it somewhat before surgery in about 2 months. I
Will loose the ovary and have a hysterectomy due to
Heavy bleeding. I was diagnosed with Endo in 2003 during lap. And also did Ivf. I am fine with these procedures as I am 43 and done having kids. But I am scared to death or the surgery. Any thoughts or experience?

Is it possible for endo to come back 6 months after a laparoscopy?

Is it possible for endo to come back 6 months after a laparoscopy?

I had my first diagnostic laparoscopy March 2016 which gave me pain relief for about 2 months. I have tried many different hormonal suppression therapies since surgery. Depo x2 months, then aygestin + femara, then aygestin + lupron.. now OCPs .. possible Mirena IUD to come soon. The pain comes and goes as well as menses. Despite all of those therapies, is it still possible for endo to come back so quickly? ...With vengeance?!

It might take your period awhile to reset itself after surgery. Surgery throws your cycle out of whack

Letrozole

Letrozole

My doc prescribed Letrozole for estrogen supression. I have been on it 9 days and have been experiencing fullness in my ovaries and uterus. They are very swollen and tender, they fell like they are going to pop. I couldn't sleep due to the pain and barely made it through my work day. My mood has also been effected and I have been more depressed. I called my doctor and they offered to switch to Ayegestin, but its up to me. Has anyone experienced a decrease in side effects with Letrozole? I don't want to… read more
