Have you done any OE stim cycles? Lupron is no different than menopur or Gonal-f - same type deal. My issue with Lupron was that for the first 5 days I was on a high dose (20iu) and BCP's and I was in a horrible and depressed mood and really should have been shut off from society! I was like a really pissy Jim Carey/Liar Liar. A thought couldn't come into my head without me wanting to spit it out. Yikes! Not good for the work place.

After that initial 5 days, my dose was lowered to 10iu and I stopped the BCPs, it wasn't nearly as bad. The shot itself isn't that bad.

I think the 'really bad' one you are talking about is the PIO (progesterone in oil). I couldn't do that one. Had to settle for a much, much more expensive alternative (crinone). Don't worry about that one yet. Just do the next thing in front of you, which is the lupron shot tomorrow.

Good Luck!

If you want to feel like you are making it easier, you could numb the area with vagisil (20% benzocaine) for a bit before injecting but truly this is the easiest shot you will do. Welcome and best to you!
