Here is one site I found with some personal experiences on Lupron. Some good, but most bad. www.medications.com/lupron/browse Please don't take my word for it, you need to do your own research and decide what will be best for you. I was just not willing to take the chance on all of the side effects. Good luck. Please keep us posted on what you decide and how you are doing.
I have endo,fibroid tumors,enlarged uterus,cysts on both ovaries, my md said he thinks I also have a condition called aym...I forgot the name(sorry). It is where the uterine lining grows into the uterine muscle. He wants to try Lupron to shrink my uterus before surgery,but I have heard really bad side effects.Has anyone had the same problems? I am at a loss as to have the Lupron first or just go ahead with the hystorectomy.
as far as your cysts they will def go away while you are on lupron, no period, is because of no estrogen, no estrogen means no cysts. you probably pcos. i have that too on top of endometriosis. i have had many cysts burst. all they can do is put you on birth control for it. and if you have endo a ct scan wont show crap, they only way to see it is to open you up. i went to 2 doctors and they both told me the same stuff. and yeah you breast will be sore.
but it seems like you have had many scans and a consistent problem with cysts. Ovarian cancer would not get smaller like your cysts have done. But, with endo and a family history of ovarian cancer, I am not sure about the Lupron and birth control pills. Have you ever had a CT scan? Perhaps this would shed more light on the type of cysts you are dealing with. It doesn't sound like you have confidence in your doctor and a second opinion never hurts. Trust your intuition.
I find often that women who have chronic pelvic pain are talked into believing that 1-2 cm cysts are causing their problems. These cysts are normal and are almost always present on every woman's ovaries. I hope this is not what your doctors are talking about too! Your problem is a difficult one--chronic pain in the pelvic area, and believe it or not, often results from some sort of major physical/psychological trauma that becomes worse and worse over time.
I am 34 years old and have no children. In the past 3 years I have undergone 4 Laparoscopic surgeries to remove large (from 5cm to > 10cm) cysts from both my left and right ovaries. After the first surgery I was put on a birth control pill but the cysts came back within 2 months and were large enough to require surgery again after only 6 months. The third surgery was a repeat of the first two having the cysts return in less than 6 months.
STILL CONFUSED ON MY OPTIONS. SOME PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THAT THESE COMPLEX CYSTS ARE LINKED TO OVARIAN CANCER. ANY THOUGHTS! HOW IS MENOPAUSE AND WHAT IS IT LIKE?
I am 34 years old and have no children. In the past 2.5 years I have undergone 4 Laparoscopic surgeries to remove large (from 5cm to > 10cm) cysts from both my left and right ovaries. After the first surgery I was put on a birth control pill but the cysts came back within 2 months and were large enough to require surgery again after only 6 months. The third surgery was a repeat of the first two having the cysts return in less than 6 months.
All was well until April 09, then my right ovary began developing very painful cysts, I have been on BC and am now on Lupron (my fourth month) as well as BC. Now I am having the same pain, yes even on Lupron. I am going in for my hundredth (LOL) U/S tomorrow, I have had this pain before with no signs of cysts as well as very small cysts. My gyno has mentioned removing my right ovary with a full hystorectomy. I am grasping at straws as to what to do..........
The doctor noted that the CT Scan showed bilateral cysts on both ovaries. Both times I have suffered from cysts I was on birth control. Should I be worried about PCOS? I have an appointment with my primary doctor tomorrow to discuss my options as they are now. What exactly could cause them to recur as they do?
I am on Tamoxifen and have just finished 12 monthly shots of Lupron. I was lucky and the side effects were minimal. In fact, since the Tamoxifen had caused a surge in my estrogen leveles which resulted in ovarian cysts, I actually felt better! The biggest negative is that it kills your libido and that's a major negative.
Hi My name is Tonya.I am 27.I have had ovarian cysts since I was 16.I had the first one removed then.I had more over the years.I had more removed at 19 through laproscopy.I had another one at 24 to remove them.I had the last one 12-23-05.I started hurting again 3 days after surgery.I ended up at the ER for pelvic pain on 01-11-06.They did test and found that I had a 4cm on the left ovary and a 2cm on hte right ovary.I have tried BC over the years.None of which have worked.
Dear Kim How you would manage your chronic pain and recurrent ovarian cysts which i assume are from endometriosis will depend on how old you are and whether or not you are trying to have children. For women with your history who have completed child bearing, the most effective solution is to consider the surgical removal of your uterus and both tubes and ovaries. This will cure endometriosis.
However, I can answer you generally that there can be a link between ovarian cysts and depression. I do not think ovarian cysts cause depression; however if your hormones are out of balance causing you to have ovarian cysts--the same imbalance can be a result of brain dysfunctions that can be linked to depression or brain dysfunctions ie a dysfunctional hypothalamic pulse generator can cause ovulation dysfunction and ovarian cysts.
Ovarian cyst will go away on their own most itmes. Try looking around on this site. Maybe posting on the ovarian site or womens site. Wish you well.
Same month i was put on lupron for 6 months for pain management from endo and so that cysts would not grow back. I am on my last shot of Lupron this months I just went for my pelvic ultrasound today and I have one cyst back 2.5 cm. why do they grow back ? I have been on Lupron so it should have controlled it, but they are still growing back I am 25 years old please let me know I wanted to have children , was supposed to wait for period after lupron and then start Clomid.
Endometriosis can be painful, but not always, but the cysts shouldn't cause any problems, unless they are not normal cysts, in a menopausal state. As for the black outs, I've never heard of that happening to someone, but it could happen if the pain is really bad. I quickly pulled that out of my school book. I would just make sure that the doctor knows about the black outs. There is way besides surgery to really diagnose endometriosis besides the menopausal state.
Happy Holidays everyone !! After repeat scans for functional ovarian cysts, my doc put me on these lupron shots to create a medicinal 'temporary state of menopause'. This may resolve the cysts and endometrial pain and while shutting down the ovaries preventing production of any new cysts. I have had 7 months now of hemorraghic ruptures and still have 2 stubborn ones reamining on the left ovary. If this does not work than surgery will be the last resort.
Welcome to the site. Just to let you know, 99% of ovarian cysts are BENIGN. Ovarian cysts mimic ovca symptoms. Other symptoms include lower back pain and GI problems such as acid reflux, heart burn, constipation and diarria(sp). You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I have had 4 laps in which I have had an appendectomy, chocolate cysts, fibroids, ovarian cysts, and endo everywhere (all reproductive organs, bowels, bladder, and diaphragm). I have been on just about every birth control on the market and have had multiple lupron depot treatments, with my longest being 9 months. My last lap was in June 2012 and around October I began having my normal endo symptoms of back pain, cramping, and heavy bleeding despite being on continuous birth control.
I have 2 cysts one on each ovary that wont go away. Doctor finally gave me 2 options surgery to remove cysts and to see whats really going on or Lupron for the possibility that I might have endometriosis. I really dont want to take a 6 month treatment of injections for I disease I might not even have. I've decided to do the surgery. If I find out I have endo is Lupron a harsh medication. Does anyone have any experience with this medicine. What is your experience?
So now I'm playing the waiting game.....I have started the strict diet again, but if anyone has any info. on getting rid of ovarian cysts it would be helpful. Thanks!
After 6 months, I stopped and my estrogen levels shot up again and I developed ovarian cysts again. So I went on Lupron for a year this time. I thought at age 53 I certainly should be in menopause NOW! Unfortunately not. My ovaries are still producing estrogen. I now wish I would have had the ovaries removed...but remember my age... you may still want them. Good luck... for more info you may want to go to: http://www.breastcancercare.org.
Then came the transvaginal ultrasound on July 25 stating that there is simple appearing (physiologic) ovarian cysts, one on each ovary, which measures 5cm on the left and 4.3 on the right. My concern is that these may be the same cysts and they have grown substantially and if there not the same cysts is it out of the ordinary for cysts to continue to appear on both ovaries?
I had cysts on my ovaries about 3 months ago. Now they have returned. I have 3 cysts on each ovary. one of them on my L ovary is 4.5 cm. My GYNO gave me a Depo-Lupron shot to slow down the function of my ovaries. Because of the size of these ovarian cysts I am concerned about it turning into cancer. Also I wondered how big a cyst can get before it becomes an emergency.
Like I said back in Nov I had an Ultrasound done in ER, showed a cyst on right side. Did a laposcopy in Nov and DR found endometriosis and lots of small cysts. Went on Lupron Depot-didn't help the pain, bloating, nausea, back pain after 3 months (did stop cycle) so I am not doing it again. Just had another Ultrasound and this time on cysts but a fibroid ( not a clear picture of it and hard to see) and small cysts.
This medication is a synthetic hormone. When it is used, the body stops producing testosterone hormones in males and estrogen hormones in females. When the medication is stopped, hormone levels return to normal. Leuprolide is used in the treatment of prostate cancer in men, early puberty in children, and anemia (due to uterine fibroid tumors) in women. OTHER USES: This medication may also be used for ovarian or breast cancer in women.
