For anyone who read my Liquid Crazy Injections post (found here), you’ll know it’s all about Lupron Depot injections to help treat Endometriosis. At the time, I had posted about the horrible body aches, etc. I’m now 2 weeks into Month Four of my injections (2 left!!) and wanted to let anyone know who may be reading this that the body aches haven’t reoccurred since Month Two. It was two months of agony, and so far these past two months have been bearable.
Now my side effects are only fatigue (I mean, PURE exhaustion), dry eyes, always thirsty, dry vag (TMI?), lack of sex drive, slightly bigger boobs, endless appetite, and mood swings. I haven’t had ANY Endo pain since I’ve started. And I haven’t had my menstrual cycle since September 25, 2014.
My next injection is December 18th, and my last injection is January 15th! It hasn’t been easy, but I would do it again if I needed to. Don’t let my first post scare you into not getting the injections. You’ll have to weigh the pros & cons yourself, do your own research, talk to your doctor, talk to other Endo Sisters. For me, this has been worth it. For others, not so much.
Light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait to have my energy levels (and sex drive!!) back! ❤
If you’re thinking about Lupron Depot injections and have any questions, I’d be happy to help! 🙂
