Hi guys im all new to this but was just looking for some advice from others who are going through iui. Im currently on day 5 of injections im having 50 suprecur and 0.75 menopur everyday my mood is very up and down one minute im angry the next im crying, my stomach is really hurting now when im being injected and have the most horrendus headacre. Has anyone else expericanced similar side effects. ❀

Hey, I'm due to start them in a couple of weeks. I was warned that the Menopur especially is notorious for making you feel quite weepy
Do you have access to the counsellors at ur clinic? Do u think it would help to chat about it. Or maybe ring your clinic tomorrow if you are concerned about some of the side effects
Are you due to have another scan soon?
Good luck
