I was really worried about taking all these meds and the side effects, but I've been on Lupron for 11 days now and started Gonal F 3 days ago and have yet to feel any side effects. I'm really shocked by this! It makes me worry that things aren't working, but I go in for monitoring every couple of days, and so far, so good! When I started the gonal F, they cut my Lupron dose in half, from 10 units to 5 units. I take both the Lupron and Gonal F in my belly and the needles are super tiny and don't hurt much at all. I just got back from a blood test this morning, and I think they will start me on Menepur as well today or tomorrow. As overwhelming and scary as all the drugs and needles are, I really don't have any complaints so far!
