I've been reading up on Lupron and I don't like what I'm seeing. I will admit that I never wanted to take it in the first place due to side effects, an extra med being an additional step away from 'natural', etc.
All web info on it states that it may cause birth defects and so MUST NOT be used if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment (barrier contraceptive is stated as a requirement for use). Lupron is in the FDA pregnancy category X (meaning the risks outweigh the benefits and/or there is not enough info to prove it is safe), and it has NOT been approved by the FDA for ART/IVF. From what I've found, there haven't been any large controlled studies so really there is no answer. My doctor didn't say anything about this. Curious to see what others have found.
