Anyone on Lupron shots for IVF cycle?

So I'm taking 10 units of Lupron subQ every morning for an IVF cycle (DE) and was wondering what side effects anyone has had. I'm super moody and hungry ALL THE TIME. Oh, and tired but that could be from anything...  just curious. Thanks!

Thanks for the help you guys.  I'm actually feeling a little better. I think it may have been a combo of AF, and lupron. I'm sure the mood swings will stay but at least I'm not eating like crazy now! : )

I was on Lupron and Low Dose HCG at the same time so I cannot say for sure what side efects were from what. But I did feel a tiny bit "off". Keep me posted. Good luck :)

What meds are you on?  I noticed you said you ET is may 11 I am sure I will be close to that also since I started meds today.  How many follies did you have?  Is this y our first IVF?

Kricket212, I'm on Lupron and estrace right now. Because I'm using a donor I'm basically doing a frozen cycle. I'm getting SUPER nervous now though.... This is actually about my 7th IVF cycle (I've done fresh and frozen before this). My donor should be baselining tomorrow. What meds are you on? Have you done this before?

I am on Gonel F & menopur.  This is my 2nd IVF cycle.  My first ended in m/c.
Good Luck with your donor cycle.  How exciting it must be.  How come you are doing frozen?  How does it work with donor? Are they always frozen?

I"m so sorry about m/c. That happened to me the end of Nov which is why we decided to move on to donor egg. I have too many genetically abnormal eggs. So it basically works for me like a frozen cycle because the donor does all the shots and grows the follies. At retrieval, my hubby goes in and they use him to make the embies that will be transferred into me. We get what ever eggs she makes so hopefully we will have embies to freeze. Keep me posted on your cycle!!!
