... Doctors have not be able to find a reason for the pain. She had an ovarian cyst removed a couple of months after the pain started, but the pain still didn't go away. Ultrasounds and a CT scan haven't shown any problems.

The lastest gyn doctor she saw for a second opinion said that he would let her try Lupron Depot injections if she insisted. He wouldn't recommend removing the ovary on the side with the pain.

As her mother, I am concerned about the side effects of the injection. Has anyone ever received it just for pain without physical evidence of a problem? There must be studies on its effectiveness, but did it include women with unexplained pelvic pain?
