Lupron: What to expect?

Postby WJAwad » Thu Sep 22, 2005 1:02 am

Hello Everyone, I will soon be starting my Lupron injections. I was wondering if any of you could tell me what to expect.

Also, I have a cyst and my RE said with the Lupron injections it may go away. Has anyone experienced this?

first off good luck on your cycle, are you doing IVF??......

i usually have left over cycts and the lupron takes care of it... i will say, that i really do not like the sideeffects of lupron... i get migrains (i'm prone to them) and hot flashes, and a bit moody.... but in the end i hope that it's worth it..... suffer for a little while to try and fill a dream!!

take care

Colleen- Thank you so much for the reply. It is greatly appreciated! Yes, I am doing IVF. I am just starting my first cycle of IVF ever. My RE has started me out with OCs and I begin Lupron next Tuesday. I am also prone to migraines and had several while on Clomid. But I have to agree the suffering will be worth it to fullfill a dream.

Best of Luck on your Stims! Do you have a tentative ER date? Keep me posted. I'll be thinking of you!

Hi. Good luck next week! I'll be thinking of you. I can only imagine how upsetting it would be have a cycle cancelled. How many times have you cycled? Keep me posted!

I'll be on Lupron for my entire cycle. Yipeee! My protocol is:
1. BCP's for 14 days
2. BCP's for 7 days + 10 units Lupron
3. 5 units Lupron until stims
4. Lupron + Bravelle + Menopur for stims

I am hoping to start stims around Oct. 8 with ER/ET the week of Oct. 17.
