So, as if it wasn’t enough to have failed IVF I’m now 2 weeks post stopping all meds and I’m still hugely tired in the afternoons, have a breakout of cystic acne across my jaw and chin, and have (perhaps the worst) terribly dry and sore nipples 😫

Has anyone experienced similar - when did your body settle down?

It's about a week since mY OTD and failed cycle and I feel Incredibly tired too - falling asleep at 730! I remember last time it was probably 2-3 weeks before felt better x

Thanks @itwasalovelydreamwhileitlasted

Guessing it might take a full (unmedicated!) cycle of my own before hormones finally rebalance. Not great to have this terrible skin at Christmas party season, especially as it’s a constant reminder the cycle failed.

I feel you!

2 weeks since my chemical pregnancy and my chin is a mess! Full of spots!

OMG me too - spotty face and dry, itchy boobs! Not exactly feeling at my sexiest at the moment grin Every time I have a break between cycles I think it will be nice to have a rest, but then I just find myself wanting to plough on to the next. Roll on January!

God knows! I haven’t had any medication for the best part of 2 weeks. I have managed to avoid the spots. But lm tired, irritable and my vagina is still sensitive (thanks to the progesterone pessaries l think).
