Hi - I had three doses of Lupron for fibroids and heavy bleeding, you should know that it puts you into a state of chemical menopause... you will have the side effects of menopause in a short time, but they go away. Ask your doctor about the buy-back shot of progesterone, which helps to minimize the side effects of the Lupron. They DO shrink fibroids, or at least prevemnts growth. Good luck!
