Lupron Depot + Add-Back Therapy...

Posted 04-07-2015 12:13 PM by k742

After the last appt I had with my GYN, we decided that the lesser of the evils would be to try a round of Lupron Depot injections.

For those not familiar with it, Lupron Depot basically suppresses the signals from the pituitary gland to the ovaries that stimulate estrogen production; this in turn suppresses the hormones that enables endometriosis to grow. It aides in pain relief, as well as shrinks existing adhesions and cysts (according to the website). The Add-Back therapy is to...

An update - finally!

Posted 02-11-2015 01:41 PM by k742

Wow, I haven't updated this blog for a long time! Not sure if anyone actually reads it, but what the heck.

So...back in November 2014 I had laparoscopic surgery (robotic assisted) to officially diagnose the endometriosis we all suspected, and attempt to excise what could be removed, and check the status of my ovaries, tubes, etc.

Sometimes I really just want to quit trying. I haven't started AF yet but I feel like I do every other month around this time. Should be starting towards the end of next week. It's really hard to stay positive in situations like this. We still don't know definitively why we are ot conceiving.
