When should I expect my period after lupron (leuprolide)?  I was on the 3 month shot. Do u think vitex could help?

1-6 months: It varies. Some women will resume quickly, within 1 months while others may be suppressed for longer. I would certainly expect things to be back to baseline by 6 months if not sooner. There is no research regarding the use of vitex (chasteberry) in this situation. But there is some research that support the use of vitex as a hormone modulator for premenstrual syndrome, so it's plausable. ...Read more

Monthly Lupron (leuprolide)?: Were you on the 3 month shot - your period should return soon - or the monthly version? There is evidence that vitex (chaste tree) may help with pms and cyclic mastalgia (breast pain) but no studies showing that it helps women who are ttc.

Hard to say: Taking Progesterone for 10 days after having Lupron (leuprolide) treatment may or may not cause a period. Usually Lupron (leuprolide) will thin out the uterine lining. Progesterone only works to bring on a period if there is a thick lining to shed. It may be helpful to get an opinion from a fertility specialist or another gynecologist. ...Read more

What are your goals?: I think you should focus on your goals as your main focus. Why are you on lupron (leuprolide)? If you are on Lupron (leuprolide) to suppress endometriosis then no ovulating and avoiding a period is a good thing. If you are on Lupron (leuprolide) as pretreatment before ivf then the lack of ovulation will be addressed as part of your ivf treatment. ...Read more

Be Careful: There are different strengths of Lupron (leuprolide) (1 month 3.75 mg or 3 months 11.25 mg). If you took a one month shot and have not gotten a period for 3 months i would have an evaluation. You want to make sure first you are not pregnant and next to make sure your ovaries are still working correctly. Usually you should get a period much sooner. ...Read more
