Thanks for your query.
This medication have the main cause to inhibit hormonal formation(estrogen) to elevate symptoms of endometriosis and therefore stoping of periods is normal(spotting).
You should be worried if you have severe bleeding.
Leuprolide inhibit ovulation therefore pain is due to endometriosis because as you have spotting and the endometriosis is a few active.
I think that you should take and another dose to stop the symptoms of endometriosis.
Take care of your self
