I start Lupron injections tomorrow and am already dreading the side effects. I looked online, and it looks pretty harmless, albeit annoying. The gonal-f & menopur made me very emotional (like, unable to keep my mouth shut when someone/thing pissed me off, also weepy) and fat. Coming down off of them after this last OE cycle (the dose was 375/day, so my highest yet) I was beyond exhausted and insanely depressed.

So, I've read the internet lingo, what side effects have you had, first hand, using this stuff? Thanks!

I just finished a cycle where I was on Lupron for several weeks. It's hard for me to sort out which side effects were Lupron, since my Lupron overlapped with BCP and then with estradiol, but moodiness was the big one I noticed, as well as some fatigue when I first started. I also got two yeast infections during the cycle, which could have been from any/all of the meds (incl. the antibiotics).

Incidentally, before we started, I asked the nurse how the side effects compared to Clomid, which I'd been on for 6 IUI cycles (sometimes with Follistim). She said in her experience, nothing is as bad as Clomid!

Good luck, and I hope your cycle will be trouble-free and successful!

I still got nice linings even on 150 mg and had several days of ewcm. Only certain OCPs have made me into a witch from heck.

Now progesterone is a different story, but we'll save that for later.

Hi there. I felt no side effects at all the first time I took Lupron.

The second time was rough for the first couple of weeks. I had headaches that started within an hour or so of the shot, but the tended to wear off withinn a few hours. It also made me extremely sleepy for a couple of hours following the shot. I'm in week 3 of Lupron now, and the side effects have worn off.

Good luck!

and Shitty as Hell the entire time.
Acupuncture really helped as well as totally eradicating any extra social interactions where I may do irreparable harm. Exercise and going to be early were crucial.
My name is Laura and I am an evil witch on lupron.
Keep us posted.

I'm super worried I'm not going to be able to keep a lid on it at my very stressful job. Ugh. Three weeks. I can do this. I can do this. About to give myself shot #1.......

I so hope I am like those of you who had no side effects......I'm already under a tremendous amount of stress at my cut throat job. The last thing I need is to go Lupron on somebody. I cannot wait until this crap is OVER! And by that I mean all the shots, patches, pills, all of it!

I know I've got a ways to go if this cycle is successful *b/c my clinic will have me on PIO for first 3 months of pg* but I just have to keep my I on the ball; the light at the end of the tunnel.

Okay, off to take off my make-up and then do first lupron shot. I so hope this works!!
