I also posted this on the Endometriosis UK page as I have Endometriosis.
Hope someone can help me.
I am on Protocol 9 and currently down regulating with Prostap.
Got the injection on 31.12. and I started bleeding last night. The thing is I know they put me on the most aggressive protocol with the biggest amount of drugs but I am in so much pain at the moment that I don't know how to cope. I suffer from Endometriosis on bladder, uterus, ovaries (which all got operated on over a year ago) and have adhesions as well.
Last night I got very sick and got bad diarrhoea (sorry for TMI) also have very heavy bleeding and shooting and stabbing pain everywhere. I went into work this morning but had to leave as I couldn't sit or stand any longer due to the pain. I work as a Nanny and need to be physically fit and not sit there with tears in my eyes.
My boss told me to get a taxi, which I did. So had to leave my car at work.
How do you ladies cope with all the pain and is it normal to be in so much pain during IVF?
My periods are always very very painful but usually I take strong painkillers to get me through the day which the nurse said I am not allowed while going through IVF. She told me to take 2 paracetamol every 4-6 hrs and that's it. Well these don't even touch the pain I am in
I feel terrible about having to leave work early but I got vomiting sick due to the pain.
Has anyone got any advice? Will this get better any time soon?
Hope someone has some advice for me.
Thank you xx
