Has anyone been on Gonal multi dose injections? Side effects to expect? Should I be nervous about using it? (I am!) :(

Thank you so much, Cathie. I'm usually nervous about hormonal medications. Whatever happens will be worth it in the end (I hope!). It's good to know you had a positive response to the medication. Thanks again... I especially appreciated the "baby dust!" Linda (ricki0217)

Happy Birthday!!!! Welcome to the board!!!! Glad you found us!!!!! Anything we can do to help, know we are just a post away!!!

As far as side effect with the Gonal F & those types of meds the biggest thing is water retention/weight gain.

Don't worry you will do it!!!!! It will be ok!!!
