Do you have experience with the drug Danazol? Any information on its effect on male fertility?
Asked by Pa Chao 2 months ago.

I thought I was right. I took danazol 20 years ago. it is an old outdated medication. It causes major side effects. I was suppose to be on it a year and I know I didn't make 3 months. they now have a drug called lupron that I also took it has less side effects. I don't like that it is a shot and it is for 3 or 6 months and once given it is there you can not stop takeing it like the danazol. But what does it have to do with a man. It is for women for endro,, or pelvic problems? Check my double source/. webmd I have taken both of these drugs, but there maybe something in there that would .help you. If you have endro and further questions you may put me on your friends list and I would be glad to help. I have 30 years of experince with it. Answered by Crysta Hackenbery 2 months ago.

My OBGYN has prescribed Danazol and I have been informing myself on the internet about it and don't like some of the adverse reactions, ie.: headache, bloating, water retention, WEIGHT GAIN, etc...I had a Laparoscopy performed in December for Endometriosis and had the Lupron shot which lasted until March. Then I took some hormones, all of this to try and balance out my hormonal levels and about 2 months ago I started Errin, birth control. My doctors' objective is to stop my periods to control the endometriosis. So now he said to stop the Errin (was getting periods anyway and lots of PMS symptoms) and start the Danasol. Is he on the right track or should I get a second opinion? Answered by Audrie Hutnak 2 months ago.

Good morning.. I have been taking danazol (danocrine) 400 mg per day for 3months now, to treat my endometriosis. In the process i've been having unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend. The problem is I can't use any form of birth control due to the horrific side effects, nor can i use condoms due to my being allergic to latex (im screwed) . Im a little scared that i can become pregnant on this medication--but the information i researched said that it can cause serious harm to fetus if pregnancy occurs. PLEASE IF ANY WOMEN HAVE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION, AND/OR ADVICE WITH LIVING WITH ENDOMETRIOSIS PLEASE RESPOND Thanks Answered by Polly Vierling 2 months ago.

When my ex had endometriosis, she also took Danazol, and we had unprotected sex all the time. They say that it is "highly unlikely" that you can get pregnant while on a Danazol regimen. That being said, a condom is recommended. Answered by Aurora Mccleveland 2 months ago.

During the time you are taking danazol, you should use birth control methods that do not contain hormones. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional. # If you suspect that you may have become pregnant, stop taking danazol and check with your doctor. Continued use of danazol during pregnancy may cause male-like changes in female babies. You could try Durex Avanti Ultima Condoms these are non latex or FC Female Condom,Trojan NaturaLamb Condoms Answered by Pattie Bersaw 2 months ago.

Condoms are not the only solution. There are plenty of other contraceptives. Yes, you could get pregnant. You really need to discuss some of this with your doctor to see what he recommends. If you have unprotected sex there is always a high chance that you will get pregnant. Answered by Cindie Mutty 2 months ago.

This is something you should discuss with your treating Dr. They may be able to suggest an alternative and are in a position to say if you can go without. Dr's take all the information we provide when prescribing medications, if you emphasize your concern with side effects, this will be put into the equation when deciding what drugs, if any ,should be prescribed. I have my Dr so well trained that she will sometimes reach for the prescription pad then pause and ask if I will take a certain medication if she prescribes it. I always answer yes, but only if you are sure I need it. She is well aware of my loathing to take anything not absolutely essential. Answered by Wilburn Medows 2 months ago.


What is the correct way to get off a medicine like Danazol (Danocrine)?
I have been taking this medicine for about 2 weeks, 200 mgs./day. I am very worried about the side effects. I have already started to get terrible acne and feel I am gaining weight, as well as having very yellow urine. I just want to stop taking it, is there any problem with stopping abruptly? Thanks! Asked by Jacqueline Shipwash 2 months ago.

The correct way to come off of Danazol is to be weaned off with the help of your doctor. I did Danazol for several months back in the late 90s. I went off of it without weaning off of it and had a problem. One of the problems I had was the irritability when coming off. Answered by Carolann Beeghly 2 months ago.


I have been taking danazol for four months it finished 10 days ago when do i get my period?
Asked by Jaclyn Neufville 2 months ago.

Was that the old med they used for endro? That was bad stuff. the answer being you will get it when you do. you can't expect anything because you body has been all screwed up maybe in a month. I don't really rember as it was my first drug 20 years ago. now they have lupron which doesn't cause the side effects so bad. Still not fun but better. why? why would they give you the danazol vs the lupron. the lupron period did start 30 days later. Iope they did a laprascopy first. Answered by Bao Tetteh 2 months ago.


Taking Lupron/ Danazol and endo came back!?!?
Thanks for your answer. Yeah, my dr specializes in endo and does the surgery himself, he said there wasn't much endo, but he got it all out. I am on Danazol 200mg a day jolivette BC 1mg estrogen and prometrium. It just baffles me being on all this medicine and being told it won't come back while on it. Asked by Marline Sundeen 2 months ago.

I took lupron for 3 months and now I am going on my second month of Danazol, I couldn't stand Lupron, it seems like Danazol is worse for me, constant horrible pelvic pain and a lot of discharge. SO i went to my doctor, he thinks I am having discharge coming from my Fallopian tubes 0.o and he ordered a ultrasound, he thinks something is up with my ovaries, or either the endometriosis came back....I was in too much pain to even think about asking him how endo can come back if i'm taking these horrible meds to keep it from coming back, i'm not having my period or anything so i'm stumped. Of course I will wait until he gets the results from the ultrasound and ask him, but did anyone experience anything like this? No one I know understands what i'm going through and I can't find any info on this. thanks xoxo Answered by Zachery Sesay 2 months ago.

I found out I have endo when I woke up from having surgery for a tubal reversal so it ended up being a double surgery tubal reversal/endo removal. The thing about endometriosis is that if you don't remove it it just stays there. And if you do remove it it can grow back. I have spoken to a few doctors that said that not having a period is actually worse if you have endo because it doesn't give your body a chance to shed anything then, so being on BC that stops your period may bea bad thing. The best thing to do is get the surgery to remove what they can and then cut out all caffeine and alcohol as they are linked to endo and can make symptoms worse. Found out I have endo in April 2008 and have done tons of research on it. Answered by Catalina Testman 2 months ago.

3 months on lupron and I am doing 3 months of danazol since I've had a horrible experience w lupron.(Lupron and Danazol put you in an artificial menopause, so no bleeding and the Endo is not suppose to be growing) Since surgery and the injection of lupron I have had bad pelvic pain, and since danazol it's been constant and unbearable. Had an ultrasound last week dr worried the endo came back and is worried about my ovaries, he even thinks discharge I am having is coming from my fallopian tubes.. Ultrasound tech said she found no cyst (I thought they were not allowed to discuss findings w you) and she even said it might be the endo causing pain... I'm waiting for the dr to call me today about my results... Is it possible for endo to grow during lupron and danazol? I thought it was suppose to stop it especially when I am in artificial menopause.I will be so upset to know I went thru hell with these medications for it to do nothing. I'm so tired of my pelvic pain, when I had surgery I had a cyst on my right ovary which caused A LOT of pain, since there is no cyst, i don't even care if I get that ovary removed, it's making my life miserable. Anyone go through this or something similar? I haven't bleed since surgery so how could it grow? Thanks Answered by Felipa Nitsche 2 months ago.

no it does not Answered by Cecil Morrone 2 months ago.

I had been dealing w/ Endo for virtually 6 years now. When I began cure I used to be at the depo photographs nevertheless I had a few terrible facet results w/ it so my medical professionals stopped the ones and had me begin at the lupron. It used to be exceptional! It used to be the first-rate I felt in lots of months and it helped curb the Endo implants additionally. In the beyond 6 years I have performed three rounds of Lupron interested in 6 months. I could propose Lupron for anybody who has attempted the entire different drugs w/ no comfort. I wish this is helping. Tell your spouse well success. Answered by Hoyt Gougis 2 months ago.

give yourself another year or so.this most likely will go away.don't take drugs like this at your age as it is unnecessary. It's a common condition so many guys have the same. Don't be embarrassed, it's nothing to worry about. Answered by Rutha Westrick 2 months ago.

I would not recommend you take Denazol, by US law it is a prescription drug, so if you are buying it online, it could have anything in it. Denazol should not be taken at your age as the side affects can be masculinizing which, because u are currently going through puberty could cause problems with your body in later life. also Denazol is quite an old drug now and rarely used, if i were you i would talk to your doctor about your problem and he may be able to prescribe something more suited to you.
