I also have fibromyalgia. My doctor wants me to go on Lupron depot immediately or get pregnant. Pregnancy most likely not going to happen. I am scared to do hormone therapy. I have been on birth controls in past and hated the side effects. I want to try natural therapy first but scared it wont work and i'll need surgery again. I don't want a hysterectomy? Any thoughts or help? Anyone else been through this? thx!!
I too suffer from endo,i've had the surgery and been on the b/c pills and nothin to gain so far,my gynecologist put me on hormone therapy6weeks ago,it's a 12 week injection,i thought the endo was bad before hand but this injection has made me so much worse! I know alot of people might benefit from these hormone injections but i am been honest in telling you it was the worst desicion i made.That is my experience with it,i would'nt want anyone going through what i am at the moment.The gyne told me at the time it would ease my pain and i'd suffer mild hot flushes,but i have extreme pain,lots of hot flushes and bad sickness! Its your desicion what you want to do,but i would try anything else and leave this as a last resort..
Hope you find some relief soon.
Take care my friend
I've never tried lupron, but have heard horrible things about it, not to mention that it doesn't even help with the pain! Plus some insurance won't cover it, and it is extremely expensive! Did you just have surgery to clean up the endo? If so, I'd recommend trying to get pregnant now, if that's what you want. Your chances of conception are much better right after surgery!
