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?

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. If given during the first half of the menstrual cycle it can cause a "flare" effect and cysts can form, the cyst could be the cause of the pain, and if it is severe you should see about getting a sonogram. ...Read more
