Day 24 – so far, so easy.

October 16, 2006 at 10:18 pm 4 comments

Four shots of Lupron are behind me, 9 to go (and hopefully on to stimming from there!).
I have to admit, so far, so easy.
My life isn’t any different from pre-Lupron. All there is, is a tiny little shot I hardly feel each day. It probably brings more excitement than anxiety – here we are doing this big thing for “the cause”!

No side effects to speak of so far (knock on wood!) and I am still jumping around like a gazelle on my step aerobics – no sweat. (well, lots of sweat, but none of it emotional).

I know that things will be kicked up a notch during stimming phase and monitoring, then really go high gear when retrieval draws near. So I guess I should savor the easy Lupron life now. I am trying to think of everything I can do now to make my life easier later. There’s certainly tons of things to do – forms to fill, meds to order, books to prepare for reading and pampering myself… I guess this Lupron phase is a good time to knock everything out of the way for when it all really starts coming at me big time.

I like the Lupron phase. Why do I have the feeling I will look back on it fondly…

    I am currently only on G0nal-F. My RE isn’t using supression first. I add it in once my estrogen and follies reach a certain level. I am actually surprised by how few side effects I have had from the drugs. I had a really tough time on Clomid – it was terrible, so I figured the injectibles might be just as bad. So far, I have been ok. Hopefully, it will be ok for you too!

    I’m having hot flashes, and not from any kind of exercise either. All for the cause, indeed.

    That’s great that you have had any side effects. I didn’t have some for a while when I started on Lupron, but eventually hot flashes started.
