Donor conception

How are you all finding the treatment meds?

Did any of you get any side effects like bloating from the meds like bemfola, utrogestan, progesterone, and other meds? How did you find all those injections daily? How did you get over the daily needle phobia?

Hi OP, you could ask to have this question moved to 'Infertility' as you'll probably get more replies from others doing IVF (though not via donor, but it's the meds and side effects you want to know about anyway).

I found that pinching a bit of belly before I injected helped.
I'd say after the first couple of days I was used to injecting, some meds sting more than others but it is only for a moment.
I disliked looking bloated, I didn't want anyone to think I was pregnant.
