Some burning & bruising at injection sites. Not too bad in the side effects department, but I've had some headaches and am tired, but can't sleep well. Is all worth it if this helps me get the results I want tho!

Wow, this stuff is dangerous "Overpriced Poison" see ABC News Channel 13 story in Las Vegas. This drug was originally approved in 1985 for Advanced Prostate Cancer. Lupron has over 12,000 adverse events reported to FDA. Why would anyone take this drug? See lupronvictimshub.com. before you are conned into taking and weight the risks (serious) and benefits (if any?) Beware of this drug!!

I took my second Lupron shot today and the only side effects I have had to deal with thus far are the headaches and the burning when injecting. Other than that, the nightmare side effects I read about when I was first told of this option have not happened, but even if they had, if it makes it where my hubby and I can get preggers.. It's would be worth it. TTC for 2 years

This is part of my protocol for an IVF cycle for frozen embryo transfer. Directly before using this I have been on a estrogen based birth control, which is standard practice. Starting on 10 units of Lupron and possibly reducing to 5 units in a week and a half I have noticed some cramping feelings. I have been told that this is to assist to increase my endometrial lining for the transfer. I also feel not that I have gained weight, but there has been swelling in my stomach area, more of a symptom than a reaction to the shots. All injections are given in alternating sides of my lower stomach inches away from my belly button. Approximate duration for shots is about 3 weeks.

I am on the 3 month injection of Lupron and I'm doubtful that I will do another 3 month. The side effects for me is: vaginal itching, dryness, spotting, bad breath, weight loss/ loss of appetite, extreme fatigue, severe headache, palpitations, depression, sore throat, mild acne, groin pain, pain in shoulder, legs and lower back, eye puffiness, frequent urination,insomnia, HORRIBLE hot flashes, night sweats, mild fevers,tongue and lip quivering. I felt like at one point my G-spot was numbed during sex. I have moderate endometriosis and was never able to carry a baby to term in the past. I am 34 and single and was worried that I may never conceive. I would get ovarian cysts in my left ovary and severe period pain. I am beginning to think I made a big mistake. I am praying I feel better in June.
