Is it wise to be on lupron (leuprolide) for 6 months my endometriosis and infertility?

Is it wise to be on lupron (leuprolide) for 6 months my endometriosis and infertility?

Maybe: Lupron (leuprolide) will not help you to conceive, so if that is the top priority, then Lupron (leuprolide) is not recommended unless it is used as part of an ivf cycle. For women with endometriosis who have infertility it is best to proceed with pregnancy asap. See a reproductive endocrinologist for help and advice. If pain control is your top priority, Lupron (leuprolide) may be very helpful. The downside is the risk of bone loss. ...Read more

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Diminished ovarian reserve with low egg supply. Would u rec Clomid (clomiphene) with IUI or injectable with iui. I am 35 years old?

Yes, IVF is better: At age 39 with DOR, you may try few cycles Clomid (clomiphene) IUI, but IVF is a better option. The reason is with DOR, you don't have many embryos to work with. On the other hand, if you do IVF, you may bank embryos and do FET later. At age 39, I strongly recommend to do Pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of your embryos prior to transfer. It will increase your change of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage ...Read more

Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?

Choices: Only a doctor who met and examined you can answer this. But, i recommend surgery for patients who are good candidates. Surgery is the only way to make a firm diagnosis, results are generally excellent, and though recurrences happen, they often don't. Lupron (leuprolide) can defintiely help with pain, but: no diagnosis, no fix, expensive, symptoms, and pain comes back when you discontinue. ...Read more

IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?

Ask your doc: Many possibilities: incorrect timing (too early OR too late) or administration of hCG, bad batch of hCG, surgeon had difficulty with TVA, maybe only 7 mature follicles and the others were mid-to-small...your doctor and your embryology team are only ones who can answer what happened. Good luck with the 7, sounds good! ...Read more
