Weightloss and an IVF cycle

Postby Draco » Sat Feb 24, 2007 10:42 am

I said in the other thread that I would start a seperate thread so kate and others can follow along with my IVF cycle..
Even my doc couldn't predict how it would effect my weightloss, so I'm very curious to see what happens.

I started the cycle yesterday and I'm in what's known as 'down regulation'.. I use a sniffed drug called Synarel to suppress my own production of the hormones that control egg development and ovulation. Then, when my system is dormant (the end of next week or the beginning of the week after) , I will take a synthetic hormone to overstimulate development.

It's too early to tell if it's had an effect on my weight or not yet.. But I'll keep y'all posted :)

Blech.. You're not wrong - the Synarel spray is yuck. You sniff and then a few minutes later you can taste it dripping out of your sinus. On the scale of gross things, that stuff rates right up there.

The daily needles are a piece of cake compared to Synarel.

I agree with you Draco - the needles where ok, the internal ultrasound to count your eggies is ok - but that horrible, yuckie, disgusting sniffer drug - was the absolute pits - but I would do it again in a heartbeat!!
