IVF Injections - no pain?

Hi All, I have just started the first step with my IVF journey, and have taken 2 Fostimon injections, 2 Meronial injections and 6 clomid tablets so far, I am a little worried as I am not feeling any sort of pain or discomfort aside hot flushes which I know are a side effect. Is this normal to not feel anything? I was told I will have lots of pain, is it too early? when will I feel something going on with my ovaries? sorry for all the questions

Don’t worry, some people don’t right up until the end, mines been different each time, I’m on my fourth and I’m really bloated and a few twinges, last time I don’t remember much going on until the last couple of days, but each round I’ve always got around 12-18 follicles, so basically it’s a mystery!! Perhaps ask the clinic if you’re really worried, but I’d just see how you go! Good luck! 🍀🍀🍀🍀xxx

aw thanks hun, I guess I was expecting to be in so much pain due to my existing endo as well. I am over exhausted since taking them too. You know that part of you thinks, if I dont feel anything then it won't work etc. This journey is so so hard. Good luck to you too xx

Yes, exhaustion is also a side effect!

Although I had side effects I really wouldn’t say I had lots of pain, who told you that? Remember everyone’s pain threshold is different so you might not have pain. Your scans will show you the drugs are working xx

I asked my fertility dr what I will feel in the 2 weeks of stims, he said lots of pain, so I expected it straight away. Thanks for the reassurance re things will show up in my scans. Hope all is well on your journey xx
