[Tansy] Steve are you sure Lupron was handled properly? It
becomes ineffective quickly at room temps....

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 per
month. Within a month or so, it began to have an effect.
several months of 300mcg, we dropped back down to 150mcg
and he's
been doing well on that amount since.
