Lupron is a drug used during infertility..so it is not safe to have unprotected sex. is it safe on your ovaries... yes women take infertility drugs all the time. side effects: i am sure there are a few but nothing too bad.. it will work itself out of your system
talk to the dr. and see when he will schedule you for th edep shot. (i would think after the end of your next cycle) until then use protection.. you may get pregnant with twins
Depo-Lupron is used to treat endometriosis. I don't think it will have any permanent effects on your body, but it will suppress the production of estrogen in your body until it wears off (usually within a month). So, you might experience symptoms of menopause, i.e hot flashes, decreased sex drive, mood swings, headaches, weight gain, etc.
That's some error, and I'd be pretty pissed. I don't quite know what recourse you have, but it does warrant further exploration.
Best of luck to ya!
When I said it should wear off after a month, that is assuming you got the once-monthly dosage. I think they might also do once-every-three-months shots.
About unprotected sex, I'm not sure, but I would imagine that since you're in a pseudo-menopause state due to the Depo-Lupron, you're safe. But I'm not 100 percent on that!
How is the doctor acting? Like it's no biggie? Trying to convince you that it's nothing to be upset about? I would be VERY upset and I would think you would have cause for legal action. If for no other reason than to keep them on their toes and prevent it from happening to someone else in the future. Giving the wrong meds can be a deadly mistake, and they have to take responsibility for putting you through the worry and inconvenience. I am just in shock that they seem to be just blowing this off telling you to come back for the "right" shot later. And they obviously offered you NO information about what they gave you since you are seeking answers here. I'd find a new doctor as soon as possible.
Thank you everyone who has given me advice on this. I am currently seeking legal action against the Dr.'s practice. I'll let you know the outcome!
