hi,  :)
i hope i have done this correct! i have been reading your site for a while now and am v impressed with the help and support you all have for each other! :)
me and my husband have just started a course of ivf/icsi/pgd we are on the third day of sniffing!!  :-\

quite a way to go yet i've gathered, but i just feeling really low! hence y i'm up at some ungodly hour!!! - just wondered if anyone could tell me what the side effects are of the burserelin, i cant seem to stop crying!, v angry and cant sleep! are these effects of it or just me being emotional!!

thank you for your time and support

Hi there Daisy

I only joined FF last week and absolutely love it. I had and IVF cycle in May/June and was fortunate enough to have no side effects untl after the drugs stopped and then I got exactly the symptoms you describe so I would say it sounds like you are reacting to the drugs. However your symptoms are also usual for someone who has given up caffeine, alcohol and smoking!! :eek:

Hang in there sweet the symptoms will pass and you are allowed to be indulged at this time, it is very stressful. I had 2 sessions of acupuncture during ET and it was great (I got pg but had a missed miscarriage at 8+4 weeks) and would recommend it

Welcome and hope this helps

Hi loopyloo,

Welcome to ff.

I am on day 6 of sniffing and the side effects i am experiencing are almost unbearable. Like you, i am very emotional with headaches mood swings etc... Just try to tell yourself that its all in a good cause and hopefully will all be worth it.

Sounds like you are doing all you can to give you the best chance so hang in there.

Wishing you lots of luck,

L xx

Hiya
I'm just 4 weeks into my first IVF / ICSI attempt with possible egg collection next Monday.

At the moment I feel fine and am very surprised that I am not feeling as bad as everyone has told me I should.

I cut out sugar and caffeine last summer, I have been going to the gym 3 x a week for 12 months, which has hugely improved my asthma and means I am no longer puffing on inhalers every few hours. I have lost 2 stone in weight and 7% body fat and have just completed the Flora Light Women's Challenge in Birmingham raising £1400 for Breast Cancer Campaign.
I did an aqua detox 2 weeks before the start of my treatment to clear my system.

I go regulalry for reflexology and cranial osteopathy and am feeling fitter and healthier than I have for years.

We have yet to see if our first attempt will work but I feel I can say I've done everything possible.

Hello  ::)
Just found this site, so I thought it would be nice to chat to everyone in the same boat!!
On 2nd IVF cycle at the mo, don't start Synarel spray til 14th Oct & didn't expect any side effects, but after reading other of experiences at least Im prepared!
1st IVF I was self injecting, the only side effect I had was night sweats...Phew!
Good luck to everyone
