So. Tonight will be day 5 of Lupron. Yes, the little needle part is great and side effects haven't been horrible. However I do have a few questions for those of you that have used it. This is what I have going on.
- headaches but only one doozie
- low back pain
- some sharp ovary area pains
- more easily irritated at work
Are these pretty common? I'm not going to complain because I know that Menopur and Bravelle are going to come with their own set of issues and mine aren't super bad. BUT. Is this normal? Or am I just having a bad week? :)
My husband has done a great job giving me the shots so far. Day one, I didn't even feel the needle go in.. Day two, he decided to go in fast since slow worked great the night before and it hurt pretty bad. Day three, go back to slow.. Well you get the idea. The stim phase starts on Wednesday so Dr. Lost will get to give me two shots a night instead of one. The two viles of Bravelle and one vile of Menopur can all be mixed together (whew). I will also go in for my first baseline check since starting the lupron on Wednesday.
Menopause has been fun.
