Lupron (leuprolide) depot not covered by ins.. Pharmacy will not accept medication discount from drug company. Any lower cost alternatives for tx of endometriosis?

Endo: First off, i wouldn't give up so easily. Call the pharmaceutical company and ask for help obtaining your prescription from a different pharmacy. But if that fails, there are other less effective options: Depo-Provera provera, (medroxyprogesterone) continuous low dose birth control pills, and danocrine. And, i've seen people get pain relief from acupuncture! also an herbal supplement called "pine bark extract" may help. ...Read more

Patent Tubes?: Hard to counsel your chances without all the information available. One thing to consider though is that endometriosis to the degree that leads to a cyst requiring surgical removal may sometimes affect the tubes, which if they're not open, then your chances are 0%. Hysterosalpingogram is a study that injects dye through the cervix to determine if the tubes are open. ...Read more

My pain m. Dr. Suspects that  my endometriosis may be growing on my spine . I'm 34 yrs old with stage 4. How would this be diagnosed and treated?

Pretty rare: Endometriosis has been found pretty much everywhere in the body, although rare, i suppose it could be on your spine. Is your pain coincident with your menses? Have imaging studies shown lesions? Have you had laparoscopic resections in the past? I would recommend seeing a specialist (gyn surgeon) & strongly consider a gnrh agonist (lupron) for diagnostic & hopefully curative reasons. Good luck. ...Read more
