What can I expect along the road? After a week of the luprin, I have nosebleeds and diarrhea so far :(

seemesurfin - are you doing donor egg, donor sperm, or donor embies?

I have to take 20 units each day. I read on the internet that those things are side effects. Maybe just not common ones since no one here has heard of them. What can I expect from the progesterone injections that are next? I hear those hurt more :(

I didn't really have side effects other than soreness at the injection site from pio. I had knots under the skin where I injected, but they disappeared after a few months after stopping the shots. All worth it for my miracle baby!

Lots of baby dust to you! I hope your first cycle is the lucky one (mine was, thankfully! )

I did lupron as well a d I guess I was lucky because I had no adverse side effects. With regards to PIO, my bum is a little sore. Poor DH the other night popped some blood vessels as he was pulling out the needle, so now I have a small bruise. The shots aren't that bad once you get used to them. I will say I prefer the PIO over vaginal Prometrim, as that gave me a gooey discharge.

Wishing you loads of baby dust!!!

I didn't have any side effects other than some bruising ( from my clotting disorder) and a sore butt from the PIO!
Baby dust to you,
