Hello and welcome,

I understand your concern.

Endometriosis causes chocolate cysts and also adhesions between different organs leading to ablocked tube and infertility.

In your case, as the implants have been removed and the cysts also cleared, tubes opened. Lupride is prescribed to keep the endometriosis in suppression. The implants do not grow while on lupride.

Pregnancy cannot occur while on this drug but there is a surge in hormone levels immediately after stopping it. So the first few cycles after lupride are important for conception. So monitor those with ovulation study and use ovulation inducing drugs if needed after consulting your infertility specialist if possible and try for conception in those cycles. Once you concieve then the endometriosis mostly regresses and so there are no further issues.

Chances of conception depend upon the extent of disease and condition of tubes and their relation to the ovaries after surgery. Immediately after stopping lupride, chances are good.

Best of luck and do not worry. You are undergoing the correct treatment.

Thanks for using HCM.
