I think you need to check with the doctor about getting your period while on Lupron.  I got 2 of the 3 month shots and in between I got a period and the nurses were really concerned because that wasn’t normal.  You still need to be careful to use a backup form of BC because you can still possibly get pregnant.

And yes the hot flashes are horrible.  I took the hormone replacement pills to help with the side effects.

I agree with MissAs8.  Call the nurse.  I had to do hormone suppresion for six months for endo and fibroids two years ago.  It was not fun!  Are you taking a calcium supplement?  If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the plan after lupron?  (I went straight to the Mirena IUD.)

@bloodgo1:  So sorry!  I got a little busy with other things and stopped logging in here.  Have Mirena inserted was not at all pleasant!  However, it worked like a charm!  Just a few weeks ago, I had it removed – which was NOTHING compared to having it inserted.  Now, I’m dealing with my body trying to go back to normal.  We are planning to start trying to conceive right after our wedding.

Again, my apologies for not responding in a timely manner!  I hope everything is working out perfectly for you. Smile

I hope all is well with you and the lupron injection!  I am debating that or surgery right now for what they think is endo.  As for the mirena, I had it before I had any sort of gyn issues and the pain down my right side started then and continued since (but I was also off birth control for a month or two before going on it).  My body didn’t agree with the hormones in it but I had it in about a year.  Insertion was pretty painful/crampy, but it quickly went away.
