First Lupron injection tomorrow...experiences?

I'm getting my first lupron injection tomorrow to shrink my fibroid in prep for our first IUI.  I was told that I would have hot flashes but I've also read there are a lot of potential GI side effects.  I'd love to hear some of your experiences with the side effects.  I'm going on vacation this week and I'm really hoping I'm worrying for no reason!

  • The only side effect I had with Lupron was the headaches.

  • I'm doing monthly Lupron injections to treat my endometriosis, I've done one and the second is today.  The only side effect I've really noticed is getting hot flashes, but its only been a few and nothing that bad.  I'm also on a addback pill that has helped a lot.
