Gonal f

Hi ladies I have just started round 4 and this time they changed my medication from menopur to gonal f. I don't know if it's just me over thinking things but I have been all over The place with my emotions. Mainly miserable as hell. My poor husband hasn't been able to look at me. I am on a really low dosage of 37.5 so surely it can't be making that much of a difference. I have never been this bad on any of my other cycles. Anybody used gonal f and found they were the same ? X

Hi I was on gonal f . I never had anything else other than gonal f . My dosage was 112.5 . I felt ok on it but I don’t have anything to compare it with . First round I over stimulated . Second round it failed and I got pregnant third go . I’m currently 15 weeks so from my experience it’s good . Hope that helps a little . I think because the whole process causes anxiety it’s hard to tell if it’s the medication or just how you feel in yourself : hope it all goes well for you xx

Thank you for your replies ladies. I just find it strange how I'm on the lowest dose I have ever been on and I'm the most emotional haha. I was quite calm about the fact it's round 4 but maybe your right and maybe it is starting to get to me more than I think. Hidden I'm not sure how long I have to be on gonal f, it all depends on how many follicles I got when I go for my scans. My next scan is Wednesday so hoping if responded well ..fingers crossed. Good luck for your cycle and I hope it all works out well for you x Louhanlon In a strange way your comment has made me feal better knowing it' not just me that it is messing around lol hope your well and thanks again ladies x

Hiya, I don’t remember feeling differently with this medication. It’s such a stressful time and sometimes I think we don’t actually realise how stressed we are until we have emotional outbursts or weird anxiety dreams. Wishing you lots of luck for your cycle pet xx

I was never this bad on 350 of menopur so to be this emotional on 37.5 of gonal f baffles me Haha x
