Thanks for writing to us.

Lupron is used for treatment of endometriosis. It decreases the growth of endometrial layer by opposing the progesteronic effect. The common side effects include- Constipation; dizziness; general body pain; headache; hot flashes; loss of appetite; nausea or vomiting; stuffy nose; trouble sleeping; weakness.

You can safely take it for the treatment of endometriosis.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
