: My wife and I are having concieving an she recently had a laperoscopy. During the procedure the doctor found fibroid cysts and endometriosis. In the follow up appointment we were told that she needed to have an estrogen shot to further help the endo. I have done some reading and it seems like hormone treatment for endo does nothing to "fix" it . The treatment merely prevents it from happening. Since she doesn't have any pain and the goal is to get pregnant I am wondering about the wisdom of this treatment. Can anybody shed some light on this? I want to thoroughly question the doctor before we go any further.
Bruce, I also had trouble getting pregnant and had a laparoscopy where my doctor found severe endometriosis. I did undergo the Lupron injections for six months as this was supposed to help "dry up" the endometriosis. The shots were horrible. I did get pregnant after the shots but had a miscarriage. Anyway, three years later had another laparoscopy and endo was back. I might add that my endo was very severe. Doctor wanted me to do the shots again and I said no way, if I am going to try, I am going to try now. And three months later I was pregnant and I now have a beautiful baby girl. If it was me, I would say forget the shots and try now, but of course that's only my opinion. Good luck.
