I just had a lap on Friday and the doctor was able to remove endo on my uterus, ovaries and bladder. He found some endo on my rectum and was not able to remove it because of the risk. He told me today that he is recommending I go on Lupron for 6 months following my next period and then begin again with Clomid. I know I have read on here about women being on Lupron, but I can't find it anywhere! I am wondering what is it like to be on this drug...the doc said it will basically be like entering menopause. Great I just turned 29 and now I am going to go through a mini-menopause ....just what I wanted! Anyways me and jose cuervo are having a pity party right now and if anyone has any similar experiences I would love to hear about it.

My doctor recommended bcp instead of lupron - she said it can be hard for your ovaries to recover - but that could be an age factor.
