I use danazol 200 mg 10th of August.this month no periods .I am very disheart I concieve baby plzzz help me F 26 3 months
 4  Endometriosis no menstruation, occasional to frequent spotting, occasional random cramps, possible slight weight gain in midsection (or am i just getting older?) I am also on Yaz, where I take only the pills with the hormones (pink pills) and just throw away the placebos (white pills) and start the next month's pack. I started this at the same time as Danazol, so it is difficult to decipher what effects are from which drug... but overall I am very happy with my current drug situation. I was on Lupron for a year after my initial diagnosis and first surgery - it was HORRIBLE. I gained almost 20 lbs and had crazy hot flashes all the time. Went off Lupron, was not on anything for 3 years, and my periods were much shorter than they had been before, and I'd usually only have cramps for 1 day, managable through advil. Then they found an 8 cm mass doing an mri for something else, and I had surgery to remove the mass and my left ovary, which had been consumed by endometrial tissue. I am taking Danazol and Yaz now - *the spotting is better/less frequent if I take the drugs at almost exactly the same time every day and night. I might have had a sl F 30 6 days
 3  Hereditary Angioedema No more periods, MAJOR mood swings, some acne, water retention, weight gain Helps with swelling in my hands and feet. Doesn't help with my stomach swelling. Still getting weekly stomach attacks on 200mg daily. F 29 5 months
 3  Hereditary angioedema cannot stop menstrating, oily skin, weight gain, leg swelling, blurred vision, and tiredness. i have not had an attack!! yipee! but i am blind, fat, greasy, and bloody. boo!! F 32 11 weeks
 5  fybrocystic breast disease. Excessive hair growth in unwanted parts, shrinkage in breast size. I have taken 100mg og Danazol almost everyday for 15 years (well over the recomended time) but I couldn't live without it.My breast pain was so severe I couldn't roll over in bed or even walk around without being in agony, so the good things far out way the bad, it changed my life !! F 43 15 years
 5  Endometriosis Oily skin, acne, voice change, increased "bad cholesterol" & decreased "good cholesterol", muscle cramps. It worked wonders for the endometriosis pain without causing any really bothersome side effects (except for debilitating muscle cramps during the first 4 months of use). No mood swings or sleep disturbances as with many other hormonal treatments. If my voice hadn't started to sound like a man's and my cholesterol levels hadn't become unhealthy I would most definetely have continued taking it. Bit of a bummer: pain returned almost immediately after discontinuing use. I was using a very low dose: 300 mg per day. F 36 18 months
 3  Endometriosis Just started taking this a couple of days ago. Not sure if it's helped. Just nasea mainly. If anyone else has any comments, I'd love to see them. F 29 4 days

DANAZOL  (DANAZOL):  This medication is used in women to treat pelvic pain and infertility due to a certain uterus disorder (endometriosis) and also to treat breast pain/tenderness/nodules due to a certain breast condition (fibrocystic breast disease). It is also used in both men and women to prevent swelling of the abdomen/arms/legs/face/airway due to a certain congenital disease (hereditary angioedema). Danazol is an androgen similar to testosterone. For the treatment of endometriosis and fibrocystic breast disease, it works by decreasing the amount of hormones made by the ovaries. These hormones usually make the conditions worse. For the treatment of angioedema, danazol helps to increase the amount of a certain protein in your body's defense system (immune system).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
