Common Questions and Answers about Depo provera vs lupron

depo-provera

Avatar n tn Things like side effect symptoms never going away after stopping the drug, and and how oral contraceptives seem to be as effective, and such. There's even a clinical trial recruiting right now testing Lupron vs. oral BC, and the goal is to prove that the oral BC is just as good as the Lupron without the side effects. Has anyone taken Lupron specifically for endometriosis? I know they give it just before a TAH to minimize blood loss, but what about for just endo treatment?
Avatar n tn Massive doses of birth control pills (which we don't want, because of all the side effects), or to take Provera, which is a hormone. We chose the Provera. Last night I took the last pill... I was told to take it for 5 days and then I should start my period again. She said if this period lasts longer than 2 weeks to come back. I haven't started up again yet, but it hasn't even been 24 hours since my last dose. So hopefully this turns out well.
298579 tn?1192250448 The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach. I have been on the depo shot for four years, I have asked if this is a contributing factor and have been told no. I have no kids. I hope someone comes up with an explanation, because I am too young to be giving up on my sex life!
280700 tn?1210287416 I also took clomid 50mg last month and never ovulated, so the cycle was a bust and the doctor prescribed Provera again casue it could be some time before i get my period. He upped my dosage to 100mg and i'm on day 3 today of clomind. I'm basically taking clomid cd 2-6 as the specialist wanted and then he will start monitoring me on CD 9. I'm also getting IUI done so hopefully tis would help but if I don't ovulate then this cycle would be a bust also. I'm crossing my fingers as well.
1647691 tn?1363727302 It doesn't seem like it would get very good results and there would only be one egg vs several with a regular cycle, right? Just wondering...I've heard of it, but I don't know a lot about it. @beachdream...so glad you found us! I think your plan for choosing a new egg donor sounds like a good one.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I'm 4 days past provera and nothing yet. I'm getting alittle worried because I've been on provera like 6 times and almost always like clock work I get it two days after stopping it. I'll wait until it's been 7 days past then I'll call my dr. Didn't realize I could wish so much for AF :-) Well I have enjoyed this day off. Back to work tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend :-) SSBD!!!!
