How long do lupron (leuprolide) injections work to increase chances of getting pregnant?

It depends. Lupron (leuprolide) does not directly improve pregnancy rates. It actually works to suppress ovulation and prevent pregnancy. There is a misperception that it can be used to improve pregnancy rates in people with endometriosis. Lupron (leuprolide) can be used as an adjunct in fertility treatments. If you have a fertility problem, it is best to see a specialist - a reproductive endocrinologist.
Type of injection? Leuprolide injections, such as Lupron depo, do not by themselves increase fertility at all. Unfortunately this is a common misunderstanding amongst patients and also many doctors. On the other hand, daily leuprolide in combination with gonadotropins, such as for ivf can augment the response to gonadotropins, or help more uniform egg development during stimulation.
