Hi, I amnew to this whole process also. I am contemplating ivf starting in Feburary at The Jones Inst in Norfolk Va. I have heard so many different things, good and bad about side effects etc. that i am scared about the porcess. What's the real scoop on weight gain, mood swings etc? :? :!:

I haven't had many side effects! Knock on wood...I did gain a couple of pounds, but I try to stay off the scale. I'm set for retrieval Sunday and I feel bloated, but other than that I really feel ok. Some people have hot flashes on the Lupron, but I didn't. There were a few instances when I was in a funk mood, but I don't know if it was the meds or just the stress of the whole situation.
