Symptoms from the injections

Hi how's everyone feeling?

So I'm injecting the side of my my thighs as the nurse told me to. Better than the stomach apparently.

Been over a week of the menotrophin and 2 days of cetrotide.

The first few days I felt the headaches and the tiredness.

Today (day 7) I'm feeling lower abdominal cramps and my thighs are starting to feel like they are slightly bruised.

My chest does hurt a little. It's like a little sharp pain on the left hand side. Actually it's more near my shoulder.

Oh yeah. Yesterday I was crying. 😭

Anyone feel these pains?

I'm staying relaxed.

Drinking lots of water. Thank god i have the bathroom next door to my bedroom.lol
