Mindy, I had a Lupron injection about
7 yrs ago as I was dealing with the horrible issues of endometriosis and fibroids. Like NiNi said, please don't feel like you have to tell us anything you aren't comfortable with, as I can sure understand how private these issues are. One thing I just feel very compelled to tell you...and you probably already are....but PLEASE, make sure you are well-informed and understand all the possible side effects and risks associated with this injection. Once the shot is given, there is no turning back. I certainly do not want to scare you or try to speak negatively about
this drug, but I can only tell you my own experience. I know many women HAVE had a very positive outcome with Lupron...but for me, I was miserable. It did work, in that it *stopped* everything, as it throws you into an immediate menopause. Many women sail thru natural menopause with only mild symptoms, but I am not one of those women. Maybe I just wasn't prepared for how I was going to feel, and the resulting 3 months of hot flashes, insomnia, heart palpitations, anxiety, depression and mood swings were just intolerable for me. I ultimately wound up having a total hyst. a couple years later, but that was the best option for me and I am NOT recommending that for everyone. I've been on hrt since my surgery and have done well.
Just be sure you do your research and discuss the side effects with your doctor, so that you can be well-informed and armed with the knowledge of how to best cope with those possible effects. I wish you the best...and did you say "wedding"? If you're the one getting married, congratulations!
