i stopped taking lupron depot 3.75 since March and have yet to see my period. took a pregnancy test and it was negative, so wondering how long does it take for my period to return
It's been a month since you posted and I'm interested to know if you started yet? This seems to be the biggest concern for most women coming off lupron. I'v read in other blogs that it could take up to 6 months after the stuff is out of your system (4 weeks after once per month shot or 3 months after once every 3 month shot). According to others, there is a pill you can take to help you start back your period if it takes more than 3 months. I'm still in the middle of my 6 mo treatment now, but I want to know what expect after to start trying. Good luck and let us know how it's going for you!
Hi! I have had 2 3 month 11.25 lupron depot shots. My Doctor put me on 6 months of treatment after finding stage 3 endometriosis during laparoscopy surgery. My first shot was Feb- May my second shot was May 1st- Aug 1st. It is Mid- September and I am feeling cramps and my face is now breaking out. Keeping my fingers crossed for my cycle to start! (Never thought I'd be saying this :) )
During my 6 months of treatment I experienced several hot flashes per hour, night sweats, mood swings and gained about 10 lbs. I am thankful to be done with the treatment but waiting on my period to come back to begin conceiving. My infertility doctor is giving me until the 26th of this month (Sept), maybe longer to see if my period comes back on its own. I just wanted to share my experience!
I have severe endometriosis and had surgery in June 2015 I immediately started on norethindrone for 3mos then 6mos of depot lupron w/norethindrone. My last injection was in February and was told to expect period in 1-2mos from March 1st. I've had a few symptoms, cramping, sore breasts and moodiness. I'm still waiting.
I had my first dose of Lupron Depot 11.25 on January 11. I’ve had BAD side effects (muscle aches, joint pain, can’t sleep (I usually sleep great), back pain and major hot flashes. I hate this medicine and can’t wait for it to leave my body. I did not take the add back therapy pills, but I should have. I’m exhausted and can’t wait for this to get out of me. I had endo surgery in December as well. This lupron shot is worse than stage 4 endo for me. I didn’t have any side effects with advanced endo, but have every side effect with this. How long until I start my period again? Any one know? Thanks!!
Hi. I am now 30 years old and I started the Lucrin/lupron injection after my operative laparoscopy for endo in april 2017. Took the injection once monthly for 6months. I finished the injection in September 2017, I was bleeding for the first two months and got add back therapy. I experienced hot flashes, night sweats, tiredness, headaches, vomiting, depression, memory loss, nausea, gain alot of weight. I Also lost friends, and my partner left me during the process. Before my last injection, I started bleeding again, thats like August 2017 straight to December 2017. Still experienced the same symptoms mentioned above up to this date. But I have had no bleeding from December 2017 to date. My ob/gyn is not sure why and what's happening. But I am having terrible nerve pains and joint pains. My life is in shambles right now.
Hi, I had a 3-month Lucrin (the name for this drug in The Netherlands) shot to treat fibroids on 9th November 2017 and again on 2nd February 2018. I still have not had a period since - is this normal? Just wondering how long it will take to come back! I suffered from hot flushes and a 4 kg weight gain. As soon as I got injected, I would feel nauseous and irritated for a few days/week. I really did not like being on this drug.
