alternative to Lupron?

Hi Ladies!! I have a question for you. I had a tah (kept ovaries) on 05/10 for endo & adenomyosis.

My doc wants to give a lupron shot today to stop ovaries for awhile to help get rid of any endo he might have missed. I've been researching this & plan to tell him not to give me the shot.

My question is, is there any alternative? I really don't want to give the endo a chance to "live it up" so I'm reluctant to take the wait & see approach.

alternative to Lupron?

Some DRs prescribe synthetic progestins, or natural progesterone (such as Prometrium), or use depo provera shots to try to starve any remaining endo after a hysterectomy. If you do a search on "endometriosis" and either "progesterone" or "progestin*" you will come up with some great threads with much more information.

I hope this helps!
