Treated w/ luprin for endometriosis on 10/29. Developed an ovarian cyst in nov. Started having pelvic pain a couple if days ago, could the cyst be causing the pain?
Yes: Lupron (leuprolide) acts to temporarily shut down your own production of ovarian hormones and this causes endometriosis to shrink/regress.

Bleeding: If you had surgery for endometriosis, that could cause your bleeding postoperatively.

You should follow up with your doctor to discuss these symptoms. ...Read more
