Gonal f

daydreamer89 profile image

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

I was on both of those yes really does muck around with ur hormones . But gradually you get used to it makes u feel like crap

I start mines tonight had my Prostap Friday and have 300 of Gonal f to do every night till Fridays scan hoping I’m not gonna be an emotional wreck as much as I was on that clomid lol

How long have u to do them for ? Maybe u are just a little anxious as it’s round 4 and a new drug than wot ur used to x

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

Thank you xx

I felt pretty rubbish on both but had much better results with gonal-f so hopefully you will too x

Thank you xx

I’m on my second iui cycle with 75mg of gonal f and have to say I’ve always found it ok,I have some days where I feel weepy near the end of the injections but most of the time I’m fine 🙂 not got a success story yet unfortunately 🤞🏻 xx

Thank you hope we get our success stories soon xx

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’m ok, doing my usual stunt of trying to keep busy to avoid thinking about it 🤦🏼‍♀️ Hoping things improve for you xx

I hate the stuff, but I’m doing 300ug per day :-(

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