Hi Everyone

I am just starting IVF for the first time and have to start downregulating with injections on Sunday. The thing is I haven't started the drugs yet and already I am tearfull and stressed out with DH. Is this normal? He is worried now that when the drugs kick in I will be even worse. Has anyone else felt this way

I didn't have any mood swings until after my egg transfer. I do know that my sister in law had terrible mood swings immediately so I guess it depends on the person. She also gets that way w/ her period, I do not so maybe that could be a factor on how your hormones will be. Good luck!

hey good luck!
this is all terribly stressful! I was a totaly disaster before I started but then it all calmed down a bit once I did start as I was relieved that we were actually doing something and also if I felt a bit bad I knew it was because of the medication!
So, do look after yourself. I had a weekly massage and acupuncture and both helped me no end as I got 2 hours each week of total care and pampering and a place to off load!
good luck to you both

with love
