Bad period pain during IVF injections


I have come on my period on Day 8 of the Buserelin injections.

I started the injections on day 21 of my cycle so have come on my period on time. I heard this is good as a lot of women have a late period?

I tend to have bad period pains anyway as I have endometriosis, however the period pains I’m experiencing now are worse.

I’m experiencing a lot of pain on the sides of my abs - wondering if this is my ovaries?

Did anyone else experience the same sort of pains?

I had awful period pains when down regulating too. I thought it was just down to the fact it's a forced bleed. It should hopefully settle down. You can use a hot water bottle if that usually would help!xx


Thanks for replying, yes my hot water bottle is currently my best friend! 😊
