I Had 3 x 3 month injections of Lupron 11.25 over 2010/11/12,last injection finished in Jan 2012. My periods returned but were very irregular,i decided to try for a baby in June 2012 got pregnant but miscarried in July. I got pregnant again in August and miscarried again at the end of that month. I started to wonder if my hormones were a bit off after the Lupron so got some bloods done and spoke to Gynae. Gynae said no nothing to do with Lupron said It was most likely my maternal age (36 at the time) and sent me on my way.My bloods came back with all my hormones on the lowest side of normal and my prolactin was really low(prolactin is made by the pituitary the gland shut off by Lupron). I researched a bit and found out that low prolactin along with other low hormones can mean pituitary failure or damage. I also started searching around online for other peoples stories about Lupron many had good stories others had nightmares with a lot of people claiming they have long term pituitary problems from taking Lupron. I have spoken to Gynae about this several times and they have always fobbed me off but recently out of the blue I got a letter from Gynae to say that they have made a referral across to Endocrinology to have some investigation done into my pituitary. I have to say I am really terrified about the whole thing. Has anyone else had any issues coming off Lupron after being on it 3 times 3 months each time on the 11.25 dose. I would appreciate any information on this as I am really worried that I have a damaged pituitary that could cause longterm health problems and even an early death and that I might never have any more children as a damaged pituitary cannot pump out sufficient hormones for ovulation and pregnancy! It has now been 1 and a half years from I have been off Lupron and my latest hormone profile done this month is still showing all the hormones running really low,i feel totally devastated that Lupron could have done this. I thought all I was getting was a temp menopause! Any information would be greatly appreciated,if anyone else has had anything similar or if they know that Lupron can suppress for a longtime after use. Please,any hope at all that I might eventually return to normal. Thanks
