The first shot was 100 mcg and the next two shots were 500
mcg each and her vulva is still as large as it originally was
with no hair growth at all.

How much Lupron is she getting? When we started Beasley on
it, he
started with 150mcg of the monthly Lupron. We went for
months with no obvious improvement and doubled it to 300mcg
month. Within a month or so, it began to have an effect.
several months of 300mcg, we dropped back down to 150mcg and
been doing well on that amount since.

July 26, 2001. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
