  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Prevent migraine)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg every 2 weeks
Advice & Tips: See also my comments on my estrogen treatment as this was taken for the same reasons. The unexpected benefit was simply that the plan worked! I really didn't think it would. Impact on daily life was huge: stopped having weeks of heavy blood flow. Taking it for two week on and two weeks off allowed me to predict with some reliability when I was going to have a period and it reduced the sloughing/blood flow significantly.

Nov 21, 2010 (Started Nov 01, 2007)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for breakthrough intermenstrual bleeding)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 400 mg Every 3 months
Advice & Tips: I take this injection to stop my heavy periods and from the first injection I have not had a period since. There are some down sides to it's long term use, some people can find that they gain weight, not that I have had this problem. Another side affect can be thinning of the bones, I do have this problem but I am also on a high dose of steroid which can also do that so it is not sure what is causing it in my case. I would recommend this medication to anyone though, its easy just a small injection every 3 months.
