Reported Results
Benefits:   Longer life expectancy but wish I had know that my ovaries could be turned off before I started the drug then switched on again afterwards. As it is I went into a early menopuse with very, very, severe side effects.Please get your Doctor to talk about ALL the possible side effects of menopause, including sexual.
Side effects:   netropenia, stort of breath , muscle weakness, nausea, hair loss, menopuse, unable to find any peace of mind. Would reccomend eating bucket fulls of fruit.
Comments:   1 injection every 3 weeks. Then a reduction in the dose by 25 percente after the 4 th week due to netropenia.
