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
Will vitex help me start my period after lupron (leuprolide)? My last shot was ovr 3 mo ago. My husband & i want to ttc. Is it safe to start? I'm taking pnvitamin
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. We don't know if it's safe to take vitex when you're pregnant either. See a rei physician if you came off monthly Lupron (leuprolide) to find out why your period is not back. ...Read more

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
How long after stopping lupron (leuprolide) for endometriosis will it take for your body to go back to normal?
Two months after stoping lupron (leuprolide) shot progesterone is low n I am not ovulating. Ovulated one month after last shot but not the next. Is this the norm?
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
Dr suggest me to take ocp to bring back my af after 3mo lupron (leuprolide) shot. It's been 3mo since last shot. Ok to start ocp? We want to ttc right after my af.
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
